In these uncertain times, we know the roles of both parents and teachers have changed. In addition to the global challenges we're all experiencing, many are now encountering the challenge of keeping kids engaged and learning at home. Learning has been turned inside out!
To support parents and teachers, LSF is curating this weekly collection of activities drawn from our Resources for Rethinking (R4R) database, so you can be confident they have been vetted by teachers and connected to Canadian education outcomes, wherever you are.
While we want to support learning both inside and out, we're putting a special emphasis on outdoor activities. While we always encourage outdoor learning to help kids develop an affinity with the earth, now is a particularly good time to step outside. Experiencing nature can have a positive effect on mental health for both kids and parents—something we could all use, I'm sure! (However, please remember to observe any and all social distancing practices in place in your area!)
We hope you and your kids will find the activities accessible, interactive, and engaging.
