Get ’em Outside

Filed under: Uncategorized — beachbum87 @ 7:34 pm

This youtube video discusses the importance of learning outside. It allows children to see the world, hands-on. “A study found that young people could identify 1000 corporate logos but fewer than 10 plants or animals native to their backyards.”
This statistic makes me sick. I think it’s really sad that children are not exploring the outdoors as much as they explore technology. I think that teachers can change this, by taking kids outside to learn and study nature. This whole youtube video explains it all. If you are going to be a teacher one day I highly recommend watching this.
