WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?

WHY GET INVOLVED IN OUTDOOR CLASSROOM DAY QLD

Outdoor Classroom Day QLD is part of an international campaign celebrating the power of outdoor learning and play for young minds.  Nature Play QLD is rolling it out across the state, this initiative is supported by Queensland Government.

Our aim is to get as many children as possible learning and playing outside on Thursday 7th September – or on any day in Spring that’s suits you.  For some schools, this will be an opportunity to try learning outside the classroom for the first time. For outdoor learning pros, the day will be a celebration of what they are doing already and a chance to inspire other schools to get involved. For everyone, Outdoor Classroom Day will show how easy and amazing it is to spend time outdoors every day.

Outdoor learning has a positive impact for teachers and educators on their practice, health and wellbeing, professional development, job satisfaction and more.  Outdoor learning has positive impacts for children – on their intrinsic motivation for learning, enjoyment of lessons, increases creativity, and activates thinking outside the box.   Anyone who has seen the impact that learning and playing outdoors has on children knows how powerful such experiences can be.

Learning outdoors creates lasting memories, helps build a greater awareness of the environment, provides more opportunities to think independently, and gets children feeling challenged and excited by learning.

Children are more active when they play outdoors; It is essential for their healthy development and enjoyment of childhood.

It’s easy to get involved!  Free lesson plans and outdoor classroom day resources are available for teachers to ensure a fun filled learning experience.
