“If we want children to flourish, to become truly empowered, let us allow them to love the earth before we ask them to save it.”
~ David Sobel
Spending time outside during the school day allows students to connect with, learn about, and care for the places where they live and study. But it can be challenging to find the time to plan for integrating outdoor learning into our instruction.
AM ETFO is providing two opportunities for teachers to connect and create outdoor learning experiences for their students. If you have an idea to further outdoor learning at your school, we are offering you some time to meet and plan with like minded educators.
Fill in the attached form to apply for a half day of release time to meet & collaborate at the AM ETFO office in Seaforth. Submission deadline is October 26th, 2023.
