Out Teach Responds to COVID-19
In these stressful and confusing times, it’s good to remember that you can still step outside. To help students, parents, and teachers navigate the coming weeks, we are converting our favorite outdoor lesson plans into engaging student-driven outdoor activities. New lessons will be added every day to keep students learning outdoors while they’re home. Please share these resources with your learning communities and parents, and share what you’re doing on social media. Stay safe and keep learning outdoors. Because when your classroom is outside, school is always open.
