You’ve likely heard that bringing your classroom outdoors can be an effective way to teach. According to the Children and Nature Network, there are numerous reasons for taking students outside: Nature enhances academic achievement, improves student behavior, motivates the students to learn, promotes communication, improves cooperation, helps students focus, and of course makes them healthier and happier! You know the benefits of teaching outdoors - but doing it can be daunting. Join the Wisconsin K-12 Energy Education Program (KEEP) to discover energy lessons that can effectively be taught outside. Take temperatures to investigate how shading, coloring, and other factors affect temperature; survey different environments to determine how sunlight, soil moisture, temperature, and wind affect living elements in an ecosystem; and spend time in a beautiful setting while making curriculum connections. Recommended for educators of grades K-8, adaptable for 9-12.
