Description

Learning outside involves using our senses such as sight, sound, smell and touch to help us appreciate the natural environment. Learning outside is fun. We hope this book helps you and your class to discover just that, how to have fun!

Our young environmental explorers from St. Patrick’s National School in Maugherow went to the rocky sea shore on their environmental field trip because that is one of their local habitats. You can pick one close to you such as a woodland, a farm, a bog, a beach or a wild part of your school grounds. Getting to the location is only a part of the journey. It’s what you do when you’re there that marks the beginning of the real adventure.

‘The natural world is our playground and we should continue to play in it. The sense of fun we had in developing this book made the experience and the learning so much easier.’

– Declan Feeney, lecturer in Environmental Science, IT Sligo
