To support the families and teachers we work with in the outdoor classroom, we’ve put together this list of ideas for playful learning outdoors in May during Covid-19. You can download a PDF version for Playful learning outdoors in May during Covid-19 here: Playful learning outdoors FI-converted
Our outdoor play ideas are specific to our context of teaching within the specific westcoast climate of Canada. Teachers and families from colder Canadian climates might also find the ideas we shared for the month of April helpful as Spring emerges in your locality. Here is a link to the April outdoor play ideas.
Links are not working in the embedded images, but can be found intact in the downloadable version, or under each section. Remember how important it is to get outside everyday, and be sure to follow the guidelines recommended by your own provincial health officer. This post is in compliance as of May 1, 2020. Please do not gather in groups, or with friends from outside your household.

We are thinking of you all! Do your best to get outside everyday, no matter the weather, and think about ways to play that use your imagination. We miss you all, stay safe and healthy everyone!
