Take it Outside! A Nature Perspective Series
This series has been created through conversation and feedback in the early learning community as educators navigate the outdoors and offering opportunities to engage with loose parts, explore in all weathers and encourage opportunities for children to challenge themselves to take a risk. Throughout the course of this series, participants will have an opportunity to reflect and share experiences with fellow educators, brainstorm and engage in group discussions, immerse themselves in hands-on experiences, identify connections to Ontario’s Early Leaning Frameworks, and strategize how to weave their learning into their daily practice through action planning.
Session 1: Innovative Ways to Use Natural Loose Parts
Loose parts can be been found in our early learning environments and have grown in popularity over the last several years. During the session participants will develop an understanding of what natural loose parts are and learn about the importance of natural loose parts in relation to children’s development and play experiences. As a group, participants will explore innovative ways to introduce and use natural loose parts in their environment. Discussions will look at ways of implementing natural loose parts into the environment using low cost/no cost strategies.
