Sunny outside? Studies show we are more imaginative and creative when we're outside because of the diversity of our surroundings compared to the norm.
Try teaching and learning outside.
What difference does it make?
Nature and being outside inspires you. It boosts creativity, memory and brain function. That all sounds pretty good, doesn't it?
What do you need?
- A sunny or dry day
- A willing teacher :-)
Step by step
Check the weather outside - ask the students about it!
Enjoy your Teaching and learning outside. Take a picture of your whole class!
That's what coats are for! Practice for later when you turn down the heat and do some keepie uppies (see Keepie Downies activity) yet make sure that all your students are properly equipped.
Better get used to that, but that's no problem for this activity! Even better in fact, no one will get distracted sunbathing!
