ADV: Compass to Nature: Teaching in the Outdoor Classroom

Join us as we explore the four cardinal directions for the Compass to Nature: place-based education, phenology, journals, and naturalists, plus the magnetic force of the sense of wonder, through indoor presentations and outdoor field exercises to build or enhance your skills. We will also examine impact to teachers, students, and families; school curriculum and academic standards; and distance education options for outdoor classrooms. The series will culminate with the opportunity to reflect, plan, and share how you can apply the Compass to Nature to your site.

The C2N grew from the internationally recognized Prairie Science Class partnership at the Prairie Wetlands Learning Center, part of the Fergus Falls Wetland Management District in Minnesota. Your presenters are Mona Davis, Fergus Falls Public Schools 4th grade Prairie Science Class teacher and Molly Stoddard, Instructional Systems Specialist, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
