Outdoor Activities for Secondary English Classes
Those of us who know the joy that comes when winter melts into spring and the temperatures start to climb, are also quite familiar with the chorus of student voices begging to have class outside. It’s a cry you’d love to heed because you want to get out in the fresh air too. But, you’ve done it before, taken a class of students outside, a class that swore they would do their work. And they didn’t.
It’s hard to sit on the ground and work with a textbook and notebook when the fresh air and sunshine just calls you to be up and moving. But, movement and fresh air are actually things that are known to enhance learning. So why not find ways to get outside and get work done? This product will help you do so. It contains twelve different activities that get students moving in the fresh air, while they work on the curriculum and skills you want them to work on. It's a win-win situation!
