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 allow her to bring profound knowledge and a pragmatic approach to every workshop she teaches.
Come learn and explore how to introduce seeds to children through dissection, sorting, comparing, and contrasting. Discover their location in fruits, vegetables, and in the environment. Introduce children to the mystery of seed travel and what different seeds need to grow. This is the time to plant seeds, observe their growth over time, and soak in their magic.
In this 1-hour workshop, you will
- Learn how to introduce the extraordinary wonders of nature through seeds.
- Discover tips and tricks for taking kids outdoors to learn about all the different types of seeds.
