Leave No Child Inside

“Leave No Child Inside:  How Nature Benefits Children” is a blog post on Roots of Action that showcases a video from the “No Child Left Inside Coalition” as well as some ideas for outdoor activities for children and families.  The video shows the importance of outdoor education, and the post by Marilyn Price-Mitchell also offers a list of other valuable resources.  I think that we often forget that taking the classroom outdoors can be an easy way to engage kids in learning.

    1. I just read a book on that as well :Last Child in the Woods-it talks about nature-deficit disorder. How kids don’t want to be too far away from their electrical outlets today. Growing up out in the country we spent so much time outside-it’s sad to me these kids don’t get the same experiences.

      1. I did not even grow up in the country, really, but in the suburbs, and was always outside. But, I’m sorry to say that my daughter does not have the same freedoms that I did.
