O.A.K. | Outdoor Activities for Kids


Outdoor Activities for Kids is a collection of videos that will help teachers use nature to supplement your curriculum.  With the need to social distance students, the outdoors is the perfect way to give kids a break from the classroom setting but still be able to teach your curriculum. Nature-based learning has been shown to improve interest and engagement,  social interactions and cognitive functioning, enhance a sense of well-being, reduce stress, and lead to less absenteeism. We'll show you fun ways to use your campus to teach not only plant science but also history, literature, and even math!  

We encourage you to step outside your classroom and into nature's classroom!
