Outdoor Classroom Day is a global movement to celebrate and inspire outdoor learning and play! Join Nature Play and thousands of schools around Australia in taking learning and play outdoors, and by celebrating on Thursday November 5th!
Why? Outdoor learning improves children’s health, engages them with learning and leads to a greater connection with nature. Play not only teaches critical life skills such as resilience, teamwork and creativity, but is central to children’s enjoyment of childhood.
If you’re an educator and new to outdoor learning, why not use Outdoor Classroom Day to try it out? Or, if you’re already involved in outdoor learning, use the day to celebrate what you do and inspire other teachers around the world to join in.
If you’re a parent, talk to your child’s school about the importance of outdoor learning and play. Ask them how they will get involved and offer to help out on the day if they need a bit of extra support.
