Outdoor Ed. and Cross Curricular Connections

Exploring and learning outside the school walls encourages children to learn personal boundaries, understand risks and challenges, allows for opportunities to develop a relationship with the environment and engages the whole self.  In addition, physical and health education not only motivates students to move while learning but to make cross curricular connections with numeracy, literacy, arts and so much more.  This lecture and discussion style workshop will support the Elementary PHE curriculum and offer ideas on how to incorporate other curricular areas into the PHE learning environment, in particular the outdoors.
