Description: Bringing students outdoors provides natural opportunities to slow down, connect, and build social emotional learning skills (SEL). Research supports that many children who attend outdoor school have growth in self-esteem, conflict resolution, relationships with peers, problem solving and motivation to learn. In this day-long workshop, we will share strategies for embedding SEL into outdoor activities such as nature journaling and student centered investigations. You will participate in activities that build and extend students confidence and knowledge as they lead up to and return from outdoor school. This workshop is intended for 5th and 6th grade teachers who participate in or work with Outdoor School. Registration required. Substitute reimbursement and PDUs avaialbe.
