In this workshop we will explore the importance of the natural environment to our overall well-being and how this can be emphasized through our teaching practices. We will examine our own connections to place and emphasize ways to build social and emotional awareness and skills through activities in an outdoor classroom. The focus of this workshop will be on K-3 classrooms, but all educators are welcome to join!
