Get Outdoors! Exploring place-based, experiential learning in the outdoor classroom (Elementary)

You don't need to be an expert naturalist to use the outdoor classroom effectively!  Discover and explore place-based, experiential strategies, aligned with the new BC curriculum. Enrich student learning in any subject area while connecting them to nature too. 

This workshop will be co-delivered by Metro Vancouver School Programs, WildBC and the Surrey Nature Centre – each offering field trips, K-12 resources and teacher workshops to support student learning and inquiry in the outdoor classroom.

Participants receive Get Outdoors, An Educator’s Guide to Outdoor Classrooms in Parks, School Grounds and other Special Places – a teacher resource packed with fun and practical strategies for taking students outdoors. Participants will also receive instructional posters, a Metro Vancouver satellite map and links to local partners and resources to enhance outdoor and experiential teaching and learning. 

This workshop will take place offsite at:
