Outdoor Learning Ideas

Taking Learning Outside

We have three more weeks of school to go, but I am getting an itch to take as many of our activities outside as possible. In fact, my goal for May is to do something outside every day and so far we’ve been doing quite well. Just to keep myself motivated, I make sure to capture our time outside in photos and learn some digital photography tricks while I am at it. You can this photo series on my Facebook page.Catch a Rainbow

It's been an odd May, some days it's been incredibly warm, but then we've had days where the weather was back down in the 50s again and no one wanted to be outside.
