Weekly Challenge for #EnviroEd # 76 #ClassTrekking
In Ontario where I live the first week of October each year is Ontario Hiking Week. This year that will be celebrated from October 1 to October 7th.
It’s a wonderful time of year to explore our region. While in the southern part of the province perhaps the most stunning colours have not yet come to their peak – they shall later this month. Trees along roadsides, at the edge of the forests or perhaps trees under a wee bit of stress are likely already changing no matter where your school or community exists if in Canada or the northern US.
It’s also a great time of year to get out and explore as hiking is one of the easier things to do with a class in both an urban or rural setting. It’s a super way to get to know your class (or faculty I say to the administrations out there!)
Bring a book, a snack, a camera for photos to continue the discussion back in the school.
So this week I challenge classes of all ages to get out and do some trekking, share and encourage others to do so as well by sharing on social media using the hashtag #classtrekking.
