Thinking Naturally: Preschool Outside Facilitates Learning

As the weather turns cooler in the south, HoneyFern is much happier to be outside. We also get lovely pictures like this one:

It is always much nicer to be learning outside, and now some schools in America are discovering this, starting "nature schools" - pre- and elementary schools that hold student-led classes outside. Exploring nature and getting hands-on is a natural fit for young children, and schools that encourage curiosity and questioning give their kids a head start. My alma mater, Antioch University, is even developing a nature preschool major.

Enjoy the day!
