Outdoor Play and Learning: Loose Parts (Video)
Check out Evergreen’s video Outdoor Play and Learning: Loose Parts, and see how teachers and their students engage in curriculum-connected, inquiry-based learning right on their schoolgrounds using loose parts. See how using wood cookies, wood planks, burlap and ordinary kitchen items can provide rich, experiential learning opportunities right outside your classroom, and how this approach leads to “ more critical thinking, more creativity, more imagination.” Go to the Evergreen website and click on the Outdoor Play and Learning tab to access the video.
