Yesterday we went on another learning journey… to our local dump! The learning that occurred outside of the classroom was incredible. This type of experiential learning is hard to replicate in a textbook or a classroom. Our students learned, first hand about Thunder Bay’s landfill site from Mr. Latta, a true expert in his field. We also had a unique opportunity to get a guided tour of the the dump from the seats of our school bus. The more our students learned, the more questions they had and a passion to find solutions to the global garbage problem was instilled in each of them.
How do you create a sense of adventurous learning in your students? Please share!
