FIELD Edventure Story
When Crestwood Elementary School approached FIELD Edventures, they already had a strong investment in outdoor education. Every student participated in “Outdoor Education Mondays” where community volunteers would take classes into the school forest and garden. The staff, however, desired a more integrated approach to outdoor education.
FIELD Edventure coaches worked with a core writing team of teachers and community volunteers to develop an outdoor inquiry framework with weekly environmental learning experiences integrated into science, social studies, and writing curriculum for all students, to provide nearly 12,000 hours of instruction outdoors.
