Take Advantage of Opportunities

With late summer days and soon to be fall days, we have lots of chances to enjoy the outdoors. So, why not find school-related activities to incorporate into your studies? You can go to a local park, backyard, or neighborhood where you can:

  • collect leaves (science)
  • inspect insects (science)
  • go on hikes (physical education, health)
  • pack nutritious snacks (health)
  • sing songs (fine arts)
  • use a map (social studies)
  • do a GeoCache (social studies, math)
  • make a map of the area (social studies, art)
  • collect nature items, identify and classify them, count them, draw them, make a collage (science, math, art)
  • write about the experience (language arts)

I hope this gets your creative juices flowing and thinking that school can be more than just worksheets and sitting inside.

Have a great week! ~Lisa~
