Learning occurs in many places besides the classroom and well-designed outdoor play environments can provide young children unique experiences that can be authentic, experiential, and relevant. Outdoor play and learning environments are the ideal place to reinforce and extend classroom learning in new and exciting ways.

Out is In!: Bringing Classroom Learning Outdoors

Presented By Jennie Sumrell

PlayCore, Center for Professional Development
November 19th, 2014 2:00 PM CST

 

The evidence is quite clear that play equals learning across developmental domains. Learning occurs in many places besides the classroom and well-designed outdoor play environments can provide young children unique experiences that can be authentic, experiential, and relevant. Outdoor play and learning environments are the ideal place to reinforce and extend classroom learning in new and exciting ways.  Join us as we explore ways to stimulate creativity, imagination, and learning through hands-on learning experiences outdoors.  Attendees will leave with new  ideas and resources to utilize their outdoor play space to provide meaningful play and learning experiences and support the  overall development of young children.

 

Learning objectives:

1) Discuss research-based strategies for creating quality outdoor play environments that provide unique hands-on learning experiences that support creativity, imagination, and learning outdoors


2) Summarize developmentally appropriate play elements and design best practices that align with early childhood accreditations and requirements for outdoor play and learning environments


3)  Outline a variety of resources and ideas to extend classroom learning outdoors in areas such as creative arts, circle time, math, dramatic play, science, literacy & language, music, sensory-motor, sand & water, and social and motor skills
