In 2013, two teachers in a small socio-economically diverse school in Vermont, USA took their kindergarten class outside one day, every week, all year. Three years later, dozens of classrooms across the country follow a similar model. Join this session to experience the flow of our outdoor day and learn that you too can take your class outside to play and learn. We'll follow our outdoor routines(sit-spots, morning meeting, teacher stations and more) and discuss the infrastructure (toilets! fires!) and gear that we use. We'll do this all outside, come with appropriate clothing and enthusiasm!

Max Capacity: 20
