There are many ways outdoor spaces can be transformed into fully functioning classrooms where children explore, experiment, and spend quality time in nature. Filled with both simple and large-scale ideas, this book supports early childhood educators and administrators as they design and implement outdoor learning environments. A child development professional specializing in building and playground design and renovation, Eric Nelson promotes the idea that everything done indoors can be done just as well--if not better--outdoors. Chapters examine the role of the outdoor classroom, working with children outdoors, getting support from stakeholders, getting started, evaluating the outdoor environment, program and implementation strategies, and more. Loaded with colorful photographs of creative and practical outdoor spaces, Cultivating Outdoor Classroomsinspires the transformation of outdoor spaces in any climate into safe and effective learning environments.
