Outdoor Education

The Robertson Program worked closely with Mine Centre Public School Kindergarten Teacher Marge Hale and Early Childhood Educator Sara Empey to develop activities that support math and science exploration in the outdoors.

Located 45 minutes from Fort Frances, Ontario, Mine Centre P.S. has been developing an outdoor classroom, better known as “camp” by staff and students. The space has a meeting area with benches, a fire pit, a shelter and trails through the surrounding woods – all for the students to enjoy and explore.

Marge and Sarah are sharing some of the math- and science-focused activities that their students enjoy. Feel free to try them with your own students in an outdoor space.
