I made a boat with birch bark. I tested the bark first to see if it would float. It did!!!
You're so talented!

Description

Group Experience

Students will learn about different ideas in nature and their own nature interests.  They will be guided to use the inquiry process all ideas and interests.
I have run a Forest Kindergarten and Natural Learning Program for more 10 years using Inquiry and Project Based Learning.  I train educators as a part of the Eco Forest School Collaboration. I trained at Cedarsong under Erin Kenny to earn my Forest Kindergarten teaching certification.  I am completed my Masters of Education in Sustainability, Creativity and Innovation which focuses on innovative learning approaches such as sustainable education, online and in person inquiry and project based learning and creative pedagogy.
Welcome to our Group! We want all of our learners to feel comfortable, connected, and safe. That's why we have 3 rules we ask you to follow: Be Kind, Be Safe, and Be Respectful.

Be Kind - Help all learners feel welcome and included.
Learners from all over the world, with different backgrounds, races, ethnicities, abilities, gender identities, religions and body types, participate in our Group. Always be nice and make others, especially new learners, know that they belong and are welcome. Teasing, name calling, or bullying anybody in our community? Nope. Not happening here

Be Safe - Keep your personal information private and never ask other learners for theirs.
Personal things are personal. We want to keep you safe on Outschool, but we also want YOU to understand how to be safe when you're meeting other learners or teachers. Keep your full name, home address, gaming or social media name, email, and school name private.

Be Respectful - Treat others how you want to be treated.
Keep language clean and information you share safe. If you wouldn't say it or share with your grandma, don't do it here. Swear words, racy videos, and violent images are not allowed. Treat Outschool like a public place, and when in doubt, keep things covered.

Listen To Your Grownup - Adventures are done outside and your grownup may need to change, adapt or do things different based on their comfort and what you have available.  Your grown up has the final say over how the inquiry will be done.
View and create posts any time, at your own pace..
Grownups are to accompany their children outside and adjust to their comfort level for any challenge.  Example if we have a water challenge the challenge will be set for a small body or water such as a puddle or a sink but grownups can adjust to a larger body of water to their comfort level if they want to do something different.  If the grown up needs help with adjustments feel free to message me and I will come up with an adjustment or alternative that week.
