In this episode, International Educational Consultant and nature-based learning advocate, Niki Buchan, offers practical suggestions for creating a positive ethos for nature-based learning in all different types of environments.
Taking learning outdoors
During her conversation with Alistair, Niki encourages practitioners to consider the following:
🌳 Take children’s learning beyond the setting by visiting local parks and utilising local amenities.
🌼 Have arrangements in place with local suppliers and/or family members to help bring nature to the setting when it’s not always directly accessible on-site.
🐛 Create a mini-beast or bug sanctuary on-site and encourage the children to support this – is it a sanctuary or a hotel?
💭 Plus, so much more! Listen to the full podcast on your preferred streaming platform.
