Numeracy and Well-being in Your Schoolyard: Exploring Math Concepts Through Fun Outdoor Activities

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.

What do numeracy, well-being and the outdoors have to do with each other? Everything! Studies show that children, especially those with the most challenging behaviours, feel more relaxed outside and are therefore more open to deep learning. This workshop will demonstrate how to use the outdoor learning environment to provide authentic and rich opportunities to develop a range of numeracy skills. Whether you're teaching basic operations, estimation, magnitude, measurement, patterns, shapes, or space, it's more fun and meaningful to do this outside where students will naturally be happier and more engaged. We'll also explore how Indigenous perspectives and outdoor learning can promote your students' well-being by fostering a sense of place and helping them feel connected to themselves, their classmates, and Mother Earth. Join us for this hands-on session where we'll have fun demonstrating activities and expanding your learning environments.
