It has been a particularly long and  difficult winter for many of us. I started thinking about the many months we are cooped up inside classrooms with indoor recess, artificial light and stale air. Conversations with colleagues lead to how can we take the learning outside, yet still make very valuable minute of instruction count!! It is obviously a concern to more people than just those of us here in Saskatchewan, as I found the following links with ideas for getting outside.
