Outdoor education- seeing what’s around us.

*Outdoor education*

A lot of times during outdoor education, we try to practice mindfulness. In our chaotic busy kindergarten lives, we try to listen to what we hear, we think about what we see around us and what we smell around us.


We sit in a big group and listen to what our friends have to offer. During this time of sharing, children learn to respect, children learn to wait, they learn to listen to each other.

*everyone comes running*

“how did it get here???” 🤔

Friend3 “it’s not moving...”🙄

Friend 4 “wait, it’s a toy!” 😅

Friend 1 “I see a bug but it’s not moving..” Friend 2 “maybe he’s thirsty. Let’s give him water!”

Friend 1 “I think he’s sleeping, leave him alone.”
