Nature Based Learning in Your Homeschool

Nature based learning is a growing trend in education, but the homeschool world has always known the importance of giving our children plenty of time outside.

Children of all ages can benefit from spending time outside connecting and exploring nature.

Children who spend time outside demonstrate more advanced problem-solving skills than kids inside.

Traditional schools are catching up by turning to more outdoor learning with outdoor classrooms, field trips, and fewer playgrounds at recess. Go with your gut and get the kids outside.

Have a lunchtime picnic! Having a picnic table in your backyard makes this an easy thing to do regularly, but a blanket on the ground will work well too.

Plan to spend a whole day hiking maybe pack lunch and walk for a few miles before having a picnic.
