Outdoor learning: Can it be independent and how?Explore the surroundings before you decide to take your outdoor lesson to that location;See what the outdoor location itself can offer and develop your lesson around the natural surroundings;Give a lot of choice in terms of activities;Provide chances for exploration and experimenting;Provide sensory experiences and independent play;Don't over-structure your activities;Don't interrupt any activity and use any unplanned occurrences to learn something;Start by using a low prep activity such as a nature scavenger hunt.Get a free natural scavenger hunt material for outdoor learning here! (No need to print out the scavenger hunt sheet, if you want you can copy-paste it manually or have children copy and make their own copies.)Unit 2, Outdoor lesson (play from 2:00 to 2:50)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Agnkpl0524&t=4s

Are the activities boring and unappealing?Try an experiment!Water filtration experimentFace to face activity, online (the teacher can do the experiment in a live lesson and the children can do the rest of the activity their parents and present in an online lesson).Individual and group workPrediction question: Which filter do you think will work the best and why?1. A few recyclable plastic bottles, cut in half;2. Used sponge, cotton, sand, rocks, or any other material you have that can act as a filter.3. WATER!
