Camping brings up images of sleeping in the great outdoors, gathering round a camp fire, and of getting closer to nature and loved ones. With all that it offers, camping should also be used in a fun and comprehensive learning unit. A camping unit can be used to introduce and reinforce several important concepts in Early Childhood Education; including language, cognitive, social, and motor skills. This unit includes a letter for parents, a background and description of camping, 11 detailed classroom activities (including printables and photographs), and 4 ideas for additional activities. Also, included is a list of goals after each activity, which align with the drafted Common Core Standards for preschool. This unit is appropriate for preschool and day care classes.
