Art is good for the soul, and so is the great outdoors... so why not make the most of both during Children's Art Week? Create some nature-inspired artworks - everything you need to help you teach an engaging and well prepared art lesson is here.
Supporting Art and English, these are some outdoor learning activities that just work brilliantly! They can be standalones that get repeated with different groups or at different times of year, or starting points for learning that leap off into many different directions. Differentiated accordingly the activities are suitable for early years upwards.
“We often forget that WE ARE NATURE. Nature is not something separate from us. So when we say that we have lost our connection to nature, we’ve lost our connection to ourselves.” ― Andy Goldsworthy
This lesson, based on his work, aims to readdress this balance and reconnects children with the natural world that surrounds them.
