With outdoor classrooms come amazing opportunities to engage children in learning of all subjects – science, math, social studies and reading. The simple act of reading outside can have profound impacts. While meeting learning objectives and state educational standards, you are also providing students an opportunity to render the physical and mental health benefits of spending time outside. A true win-win.
In our Outdoor Classroom Book Bags guide you will find a list of books that are grade specific. Each grade has at least 15 books that will help supplement their science curriculum while meeting language arts standards.
Try putting together a bag for each grade level. Then teachers can grab the bag and head outside with their students. This is a perfect opportunity for group or silent reading time outside.
