Our Journey

This project used the framework of the outdoors as a place based, inquiry environment that engages children and families. We examined the innate need children have to play outside in the natural world.

As we began to explore the idea of fairy tales and story structure outside we discovered:

  1. A relationship with place
  2. Time to learn with each other
  3. How to share what we know with each other

“Listening to trees is important they actually talk to you” -S, age 4
