TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Thomas J. Elpel works with schools to reconnect kids and nature. He leads day programs for elementary grades and wilderness survival camping trips for middle school grades, immersing the kids deeply in ancient skills and botany. His events and educator resources are designed to reach kids at a deeper level of learning.

MY TEACHING STYLE

It is essential to reconnect kids with the real world. Students who have been raised exclusively in the conceptual world of electronic media and books can struggle to grasp at an intuitive level how the world really works. There is nothing more powerful than getting outside and playing in the mud, identifying plants, stalking animals, starting a fire by rubbing sticks together, or sleeping in a hand-made shelter without a tent.
