Monday March 5, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST
Presented by Erin Buhr, M.Ed., Early Childhood Education Specialist
Sponsored by Gryphon House
Often we miss the potential of field trips to extend and deepen learning. In this edWebinar, learn how to have fun, engaging field trips that build on classroom learning, reinvigorate subjects, and deepen learning for all young students. Countless adventures and learning opportunities for young learners await outside! Going for a walk or exploring the local community can bring about much more than just exercise.
In this recorded session, Erin Buhr, M.Ed. explores:
- Tips for picking field trips for toddlers through grade three children
- Guidelines for aligning field trips with your curriculum, developmental goals or other learning standards while staying within a small budget
- How to prepare yourself and your students for success before, during and after your learning adventure to make the most of each field trip experience
- How the right trips can enhance vocabulary, language skills, cognitive skills, motor skills, and more
Teachers of toddlers to grade three children are invited to watch this recorded event. Learn how to teach your little learners about their surroundings through fun and adventurous local explorations, outdoor games and activities that promote and enhance learning.
