Episode 2: Nature at school
Take a peek inside an outdoor classroom and a nature-based school.
We speak with Reg Leidl and Melissa Johanson of Macdonald School about their new outdoor classroom in Stockholm. Kim Weiss, founder of Prairie Sky School in Regina, gives us an inside look at her nature-based school. We also talk:
- why schools and educators should care about the growing nature deficit
- what really happens when you get students outside (hint: they like it!)
- how you deal with risk and distraction in an outdoor classroom
- tips for starting small
