Whether we bring nature into the classroom, take students outside to learn, or find impromptu teachable moments, ES has many benefits.
Imagination and enthusiasm are heightened
ES is hands-on, interactive learning that sparks the imagination and unlocks creativity. When EEs is part of a student’s learning they are more enthusiastic and engaged in learning, which raises student achievement in core academic areas.
Learning extends beyond the walls of the classroom
Not only does ES offer opportunities for experiential learning outside of the classroom, it enables students to make connections and apply their learning in the real world.
Critical and creative thinking skills are enhanced
ES encourages students to research, investigate how and why things happen, and make their own decisions about environmental issues.
Tolerance and understanding are supported
ES encourages students to investigate varying sides of issues to understand the full picture. It promotes tolerance of different points of view and different cultures.
Healthy lifestyles are encouraged
ES gets students outside and active, and helps address some of the health issues we are seeing in children today.
