This full year lesson plan bundle contains 20 nature-based lesson plans following forest school and outdoor education models. It is inspired by Jon Young's Coyote Mentoring and the natural cycle of learning. These 20 lessons equip teachers and mentors to instill in their students strategies such as mapping, birding, mindfulness, awareness, animal tracking, journaling, and curiosity.
Learn to teach outside even if you’re not outdoorsy!
This eBook is written for teachers, parents, caregivers, and mentors who understand the value and importance of having their children spend time in nature but may not have the time, resources, or ability to dedicate a regular part of their schedule to outdoor education. No matter how much time you have or advanced preparation you’ve done, there are things you can do with your students outside that are fun, educational, and worthwhile.
Each spring Long Live the Kings, a Pacific Northwest salmon nonprofit, invites educators and the general public to pick their favorite fish, join a team, and watch an epic 5 day migration in early May. The activities in this toolkit are designed to accompany the migration, which is from May 3-7 in 2021. Start with a quick look at the Curriculum Overview and Journal and use the activities and resources in your lesson plans as needed.
