Teacher PD Training Workshop : Forest Fables - Gateway to Outdoor Learning

Workshop Objectives

1. Introduce teachers to the benefits, effective strategies, and joy of Outdoor Learning, while meeting curriculum goals.

3. Provide hands-on experience with Forest Fables, a fun story-based primary resource infused with Forest Therapy, designed as a ‘gateway’ to inspire regular Outdoor Learning experiences.

4. Inspire teachers to bring their lessons outside while meeting their curriculum and assessment goals through a collaborative Outdoor Learning application activity.
