Outdoor Classrooms Training and Development Programs
“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” Ben Franklin
Outdoor Classrooms inspires early childhood teachers, out of school time educators; along with, parents and families to create one-of-a-kind Outdoor Classrooms and/or Backyard Teaching Gardens. All on a shoe-string budget. One way we do this is through workshops and training.
All workshops and training are led by Victoria Hackett, M.Ed. Whether your workshop is online or onsite, Victoria blends theory with hands-on problem-solving techniques, true-to-life anecdotes, valuable tips, and lively participation. Her extensive experience as a consultant/trainer/mentor and her background as a Natural Teacher allows her to bring a profound knowledge and a pragmatic approach to every workshop she teaches.
The WORKSHOP BUNDLES ARE HERE! Since so many of you have been enjoying the 1-hour workshops and have inquired about purchasing them in bulk, I’m happy to announce that they are here! Did you miss a few of the workshops? Or, are you looking to hunker down on a rainy day and binge-watch all of them? Now you can! Interested? Learn more HERE.
PLANT EXPLORATIONS: ONLINE
Have you ever been on a walk with children and wondered what the names of all the plants were? Habitats are places where many diverse plants can be found. Some plants arrive “on their own” while others arrive with some help. As Natural Teachers, we can add plants to our Outdoor Classrooms and/or Backyard Teaching Gardens and transform any outdoor space.
In this workshop, we will take a closer look at the plant world in The Four Types of Gardens.
In this workshop we will:
- Highlight easy plants to grow in your outdoor play space.
- Explore magical plants.
- Play with a variety of plant activities.
- Share ideas and resources.
Plants can change any landscape and offer an abundance of outdoor learning for all ages. OPEN! LIVE CLASS: Recording
