"Nature-Based Curriculum Using Loose Parts: Ideas on How to Take Learning Outdoors!"

Presented by Victoria Hackett, M.Ed.

Not sure what to do with the kids once you get outdoors? Want to bring the outdoors inside? Explore the magic of nature's loose parts and discover how you can instantly create "pop-up" outdoor classroom curriculum. This workshop will demonstrate how to take learning outdoors and explore how to use sticks, stones, feathers, and shells as curriculum tools. Learn a range of activities in different curriculum tools. This jam-packed workshop offers hands-on ideas, resources and playful learning.

Participants will receive a "Certificate of Attendance" showing 5 professional development hours were earned. The Certificate indicates the workshop covers material applicable to the needs of diverse learners and children with special needs.

A healthy snack/"light lunch" will be served midway through the training.
