I had the wonderful opportunity to join my grade 1's and 2's during my practicum to Forest School. This is a 6 week program in which I was able to be there for 3 weeks (my practicum ended before I could finish all 6 weeks with them).Every Wednesday, our class would to go MacSkimming Forest School and have an outdoor class all day! We spent our day in the Forest learning about nature, how to build a fire, climbing trees (the safe way), how to light a match, feeding chickadees, and so much more! We walked through trails finding our way to different destinations, and had so much fun doing it (no matter the weather). Seeing children enjoy being in the outdoors and exploring new territory is a refreshing feeling in the days of technology. I strongly suggesting all teachers look into this great opportunity!
