Sign Up for Outdoor Classroom Day: 18 May 2017

I came across this event today, and it looks amazing: Outdoor Classroom Day

It’s a great idea for all of the teachers we know, so please spread the word. On the website, there are some really cool resources, lesson plans, ideas, etc. For many of you, they can be adapted into Korean language for your students unless it’s an English class. But either way, it’s a great opportunity to inspire students to learn and play outside in nature. So far, it seems no one has signed up in Korea, so hoping to see some of our members and readers get involved and get signed up. Good luck and if you need any advice, or would like to involve through Birds Korea, you can contact me at Looking forward to hearing about your outdoor classroom day ! – Jason Loghry, Birds Korea

From the website:


Outdoor Classroom Day is a day to celebrate and inspire learning and play outside the classroom, and we want YOU to get involved! Join schools from across the world in taking at least one class outdoors on 18 May, and celebrate how important your playtime is too!

Outdoor Classroom Day builds on the UK’s Empty Classroom Day and is backed by Unilever’s Dirt is Good movement. It’s a GLOBAL campaign, so there will be loads of opportunities to share experiences with other schools around the world!

Check out the Resources section for inspirational lesson plans, posters and advice on how to make Outdoor Classroom Day a huge success – and ideas to sustain outdoor play and learning all year round.

We’re looking for organisations that are keen to help us lead Outdoor Classroom Day in various countries around the world. Interested? Get in touch.

Sign up below (on their website) to take part and help us build a movement that gets children outdoors to play and learn every day!

새와 생명의 터에서 한국수자원공사 낙동강통합물관리센터의 교육기부로 진행한 ‘나일 무어스박사와 함께 하는 탐조교실’ 프로그램에 참여했습니다. 저희 에코멤버들과 타학교 동급생들이 뜻을 모아 을숙도를 찾았습니다. 이번여름 무더위의 보상이었을까요? 을숙도의 가을바람이 우리를 함박웃음으로 맞아주었습니다. 햇살은 따갑지만 습하지 않은 바람 때문에 기분좋은 일요일이었습니다. 1부는 나일 … read more
