Outdoor Learning

"Bring learning to life with the great outdoors."

Learning outdoors, also known as outdoor education or outdoor learning, is a pedagogical approach that takes place in natural or outdoor settings. It offers numerous benefits for individuals of all ages, from young children to adults.

There's nothing nicer than to get in the fresh air away from the screens, and help the children learn about nature in their lesson plan. So whether it's just a change of scenery or a specific outdoor activity or local wildlife lesson having a portable outdoor teaching aid helps to tick all the boxes. 

Whiteboard paint and blackboard paint can be painted on panels that can be transported outside for your special outdoor lessons.


What are the benefits of outdoor learning...

  • Hands-On Learning: Outdoor environments provide hands-on learning opportunities that engage all the senses. This tactile and sensory experience can deepen understanding and retention of information.
  • Connection to Nature: Learning outdoors fosters a sense of connection to the natural world. It encourages environmental awareness, conservation, and an appreciation for the beauty and complexity of the outdoors.
  • Physical Activity: Outdoor learning often involves physical activities such as hiking, exploring, or conducting experiments. This can promote physical health and well-being while also enhancing cognitive development.
  • Stress Reduction: Spending time outdoors in natural settings has been shown to reduce stress and promote mental well-being. It provides a break from the demands of indoor life and technology.
  • Motivation and Engagement: Learning outdoors is often seen as more enjoyable and motivating, leading to increased engagement and enthusiasm for the subject matter.

  • An outdoor wendy house or pergola is a great location for an outdoor lesson. Simply fix a couple of nails to the framework to attach your dry erase or chalk panel to for the lesson.
