Weekly Challenge for #EnviroEd # 75 #KindergartenBioBlitz Starting the Year with Outdoor Inquiry Sept 12-16
For 4 years now we’ve hosted #KindergartenBioBlitz which has become a global collaboration that engages young learners to explore their own school yards for nature.
This directed, yet not directed inquiry allows students to explore, wonder, wander and share their discoveries with not only naturalists like myself and others but also with other classes around the world.
A year or so ago we created a Steller story which is a wonderful tool to help a teacher interested in joining in for the first time.
Without a doubt the highlight for myself is when classes begin asking or answering each other and not waiting for the naturalists (trust me – we’ve just as eager – but often out in the field when the tweet is sent!)
It’s a great way to start the school year – to engage outdoor learning, with other like-minded teachers from around the world.
Hope you join in next week and share with others!
