The event will be located in Vancouver
There will be no fee for participants
There will be an educational component that invites participants to take something away that they can enact elsewhere (school, home, community-centre, etc.) and share their experience with others
Lessons will be offered by teachers/educators. They will be closed events that only the teacher and students participate in. Different classes many join up for a lesson, or even different schools and grade levels may collaborate for an outdoor lesson. Outdoor lessons are a chance to share what you are currently doing outdoors with other teachers/educators.
For lessons, WAV will share your outdoor teaching with other teachers/educators to help inspire them to take their teaching outdoors and offer some ideas about the range of learning that can happen outdoors.
Looking for funding for your event? Check out Go Grants or the City of Vancouver’s Greenest City Neighbourhood Small Grants.
The Walking Curriculum 30-Day Challenge
The Walking Curriculum 30-day challenge begins on April 3, 2019 (National Walking Day). K-12 educators around the globe are committed to taking student learning outside for part of the day–rain or snow or shine–for 30 days. Outdoor, imagination- and inquiry-focused, walking-based learning will fuel cross-curricular activities students then pursue throughout the rest of their day. Visit the Centre for Imagination in Research, Culture and Education (CIRCE) event website. You will find support for joining and successfully completing this challenge including free resources, information for parents and more.
