Outdoor Activities: Taking Science Outside

Students participate in various outdoor science activities to enhance their observation, classification, and analysis skills. In this outdoor lesson, students begin by observing a tree from a straightforward angle, then from the perspective of lying on their backs, in order to compare the different images they see. Students create artwork depicting what they observed, keep a field journal of their observations, or sort and classify the various objects they have observed.

As a first year teacher, Lesson Planet is a precious lifeline! I am able to gather ideas and build on the ideas of veteran teachers. Lesson Planet is a huge time saver, especially for a first year teacher who is trying very diligently not to become overwhelmed!
