The importance of outdoor learning

Every child is so used to learning in a class room that they have accepted the venue of teaching. However, we all forget how beneficial outdoor learning can be  for students. However, due to most weather conditions; it favours indoor learning, which is a down side as most children do not get to experience the natural habitat enough. There are certain advantages to outdoor learning, which most textbooks cannot provide, for example: exploring natural habitats. They will be able to see different plants and observe the effect of changing moisture levels in the soil. Also, children will have the option to explore other natures such as: the pond life. Pond life can be very fascinating to children as there are snails, water skaters and tadpoles at the pond. This will draw the children’s attention and allow them to observe these creatures in their natural environment.  Gardening can be a very important lesson for children as it will teach them the basics of horticulture and sustainability. Which will allow the children to keep a record of the things they have planted and keep track of progress. This will also, teach them the lesson of being responsible, as they will have to keep an eye out on their corps and see the progress they are making.  Online learning and face to face tutoring Genius Tuition offers online tuition and in home learningGenius Tuition offers both online tuition and in home tuition (in selected cities) contact us and sign up today!
