Nature Hike

It’s amazing the number of educational objectives across the entire curriculum that can be addressed during a nature hike.  Not only is it a wonderful way to bond, relax, exercise, and enjoy the outdoors, but a myriad of concepts can be introduced, explored and reinforced through this daily routine.

To more intentionally incorporate learning opportunities into our hikes,  I made a list of early childhood objectives from our state’s Model Curriculum that could clearly be included during this time.  Sometimes we head out with a specific objective in mind, and other times I look for ways to weave in the content spontaneously.  Check out our list here:   Nature Hike Indicators
