Description

Class Experience

Learners will: 
Discuss what items are necessary to bring on a hike 
Practice writing Route and Direction letters 
Learn the Leave No Trace principles and how to read trail blazes 
Identify parts of a map 
Implement all these lessons through a fun, interactive, decision-making activity 
Professionally I have accumulated over 3 years of experience working as a Teacher/Naturalist at two different outdoor learning centers. In both roles I taught environmental education programs as school field trips, scout programs, birthday parties, one-off programs, multi-week series, summer camps, and more. I also had the opportunity to create my own curriculum for after school and weekend programming and offered a variety of course options. I have always enjoyed empowering young people to find a way to love learning, and I hope to use this collection of experience to share knowledge of nature and inspire learners to explore outdoors through our classes together.
Paper and writing materials.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
