Living Schoolyard Monthly Activity Guide
Fri, September 04, 2015 2:47 PM
The movement to green our school grounds and connect children with nature has taken an important leap forward. The California state assembly adopted a new resolution that encourages school districts to design and construct schoolyard green spaces and use them to teach academic curricula outdoors.
The 2015 Living Schoolyard Month Activity Guide was created in honor of the first Living Schoolyard Month. It was developed by Green Schoolyards America in collaboration with our colleagues from 40+ organizations across California who contributed a wide range of ideas to help schools bring students outside and use their school grounds to their fullest.
Including over forty hands-on activities for PreK-12th grade students, the Guide covers a range of themes including: Art, Recreation, Health, Wildlife Habitat, Watershed Stewardship, Schoolyard Agriculture, Energy and Climate, Thoughtful Use of Materials, and Place-Based Understanding.
