For Outdoor School: Introduction

Getting Started

These prompts for this week of outdoor school are designed to help students get into learning mode in this new environment. Outdoor School allows some students who aren’t the highest achieving in the classroom to shine as new skills are used. Have fun with this five-minute activity. It will prepare students to truly dive in to all you have to offer!

Students will pair up with one another for this activity, so plan for a way to make this work in your group. They should pair up with someone different each time.

Things You’ll Need

  • Timer. You’ll need a timer to track start and stop times.
  • Bell or Chime. You’ll need some means of signaling time to start and stop sharing, such as a bell or little hand cymbals.
