Children love outdoor play. Now teachers can combine the magic and excitement of the outdoors with activities that encourage and support learning!
With more than one hundred new teacher-created, classroom-tested outdoor activities, Let's Take It Outside! engages children's minds and bodies as they explore the limitless bounds of the outdoors while also building key skills in areas like math, literacy and language, science, art, and music.
Perfect for ages three to six, the activities in Let's Take It Outside! take kids on an outdoor adventure as they make mud-dough letters, go on a rainbow scavenger hunt, and play animal charades.
Let's Take It Outside! is the result of a nationwide contest among teachers. The best of the best activities are selected and organized by theme for easy use. Themes include counting, alphabet, colors, shapes, art, touch, sound and sight, plants and gardening, bubbles and air, light and shadow, animals and insects, dramatic play, and large motor skills.
