FOREST SCHOOL

My go-to classroom is the forest. Here is a glimpse into how we learn and build communication as we wander:

we love learning in the woods! opportunities abound!

Special skills developed in forest schooling:
Spatial awareness: all senses must be alert to dodge branches above and below and traverse uneven terrain
Deeper depth perception: no walls/buildings/etc blocking view
Acute observation skills, noticing subtleties of bird sounds, sighting distant animals, etc
Excellent breathing
Understanding and experiencing biology in real life
Heightened awareness of the detailed textures of reality
Deeper connection with each other, easier to communicate with fewer technological distractions especially (granted you limit use of them except as tools to observe, record, etc)
So much more: will add to this list and page as I have time ❤
