Engaging Distance Learning from Home

In 2020, we're all adjusting to staying at home much more than usual due to COVID-19. Schools are closed, and visits to zoos, aquariums, and nature centers have been modified or cancelled this year.

 

This virtual field trip is designed to engage your students in a fun, science-focused learning experience while at home. Distance learning can still include connection to the natural world, even from indoors!

Why is environmental education important for young students?

Environmental education (EE) is a learning process that encourages a student's connection to the natural world to inspire a more sustainable future.

By connecting to wildlife and the outdoors, even while learning from home, students can benefit from:

  1. Increased appreciation and respect for the environment and animals

  2. Enhanced critical and creative thinking

  3. Empowered student voices and communities learning how to make a difference

Learn more about the benefits and origins of EE from the North American Association of Environmental Education.
