What is Outdoor Classroom day?
Outdoor Classroom day is a global campaign to inspire outdoor learning and play. On this day last year, hundreds of schools and over 3.5 million children joined together to bring awareness to the importance and benefits of bringing the classroom and playtime outside. These benefits include improving children’s overall health and wellbeing, as well as teaching critical life skills such as resilience, teamwork and creativity.
If you missed out today, the next Outdoor Classroom day is set to be Thursday November 7th, 2019!
If you are a teacher, join the movement by signing up your school to partake in the event and become part of 2019 map! Check out the website under the resource section for outdoor lesson ideas and materials to help you bring your classroom outside.
If you are a parent, encourage your child’s school to participate in more outdoor learning and activities.
