Do you ever take (home)school outside? I’m curious how many homeschool families take their lessons outside and what that looks like to you. What are some creative ways to have school outside?
I took B to a park and we had “lessons” of sorts with chalk. We practiced colors, shapes, numbers, and letters. He also loved drawing on the ground. For a toddler who is WAY more interested in everything to do with SPORTS, his renewed interest in art was an added bonus. I love seeing bigger kids artwork at the playground too! I’ve seen alphabet trains, mazes, hopscotch, and cool animals.
We also talked about the season – AUTUMN. We looked for leaves changing color and collected acorns. We counted the acorns and delivered them to squirrels.
Beside chalk and nature walks, what are some other cool ideas for taking school outside?
Here are a few pictures of our “lessons” in the park and you can also check out the video entitled Art in the Park on my YouTube channel.
