Over 30 CKL families attended ‘Take Me Outside to Learn’, an event hosted by TLDSB at the Ken Reid Conservation Area on October 3, 2015. The day included an adventure in the forest, with engaging activities in the woods that embraced the head, heart, and hands approach to outdoor learning.
The public was invited to explore the possibilities of learning outside by taking their child on a learning journey through the conservation area. Each family embarked on a self-guided walk through nature, visiting learning stations along the way. Parents, children and educators received a map and started out on a morning of woodland fun and education. Participants used the map to look for treasure, used their journey stick to document their learning, experienced the beauty of nature and trees, worked with clay, embarked on a story walk, sang songs, stretched their muscles in the outdoors, and created woodland art.
A boxed lunch and transportation was also included for those that needed it. Overall, the event was a great success. The rain held off and everyone was able to have a fun day in the out of doors.
