Outside AND Online: Helping Young Learners Explore (Grades K-2+)
In the schoolyard or at home, how can we help all young learners to engage with and learn from the world around them? In this workshop we will model strategies for supporting the youngest learners to explore, ask questions, and investigate, whether together outside or distanced online.
Teaching online this semester? Teaching in-person outdoors? Doing a little of both? Wondering how to help young children to become active and engaged explorers? This workshop is for you!
We will model strategies that support young children exploring, either around their home, their schoolyard, or another outdoor setting. We will demonstrate ways to lead this learning equitably, both remotely and in-person. You will have the opportunity to talk with fellow educators and apply strategies to your own unique teaching context.
This workshop is designed for Kindergarten - 2nd grade teachers, but teachers of younger or older students may also find it valuable. All educators are welcome.
