Nature is all around us in Alberta. Exposure to nature increases play and physical activity, and builds social emotional skills in students of all ages. It provides meaningful opportunities to connect with others and with the land. In this session, we'll explore practical ways to weave nature and the outdoors into instructional time, daily activities, and play and leisure at school. Get inspired with resources, stories, and tips to make it happen.
