Training Videos

CREA produced a series of short training videos for the Nature-Based Education Consortium in 2020.  In this series, called Getting Started with Outdoor Learning, CREA Educators Sarah Rodgers and Carey Truebe introduce the key information teachers need to make outdoor teaching a success. This guidance applies primarily to pre-K and elementary students, but some concepts can be adapted to middle school students. You can access the videos below:

Part 1: Stepping Out the Door (supplies, logistics, and routines) – 15 mins

Part 2: Simple Activities (easy outdoor activities that can be repeated throughout the year) – 16 mins

Part 3: A Different Approach and Knowing What to Expect – 15 mins
