Education does not always need to take place behind a desk, in a classroom or with a teacher. Family time is just as important as school time, and these 52 'Ed-ventures' provide parents with a fantastic bank of ideas to support and enhance their children's formal schooling. Each exciting adventure can easily be fitted into a weekend. Chapters include Buildings to See, Places to Go, Travel & Transport, By the Water, Country Life and Culture & Entertainment. Within each activity there is plenty of scope to help your children develop enquiring minds, including ideas on what to do before you get there, while you're there and when you get back, plus tips, suggestions and ways of encouraging different ways to learn via reading, listening, visual, sensory and physical means. Whether you're visiting a wind farm or stepping on to a train, visiting an historical building or looking at a sculpture in your local park, Learning Outdoors provides all the educational stimulation you and your children need for some great Ed-ventures in the open air.
