Learning outside can help children form an appreciation for the world around them. With Mother Goose Curriculum their are several experiences available including a variety of hands-on activities, rich opportunities to play, all of which engage the children.
Fresh air, exercise, and creative exploration are just a few of the benefits children can experience when they spend time outdoors. Encouraging children to be active while outdoors is important for their physical, cognitive, and social development. By fostering more opportunities for outdoor learning, we will help the next generation grow and develop as they build an appreciation for nature at an early age.

Questions I asked during our lesson – What do you do when you feel angry?
I explained that yellow jackets get angry very easily, especially when they hear noises.
Nature Walk looking for Bee’s and Flowers
What are the body parts to the bees? The kids had to a folder for their puzzle and put the parts back together.
Our small group math activity – Pollinate the Flowers
We placed the flower card on the table, they then had to pull a number off the table and matched it together.
