Adding the Outdoors to Your Physical Education Curricula

Happy new year everyone!

Here’s an article which outlines the opportunities that (outdoor) adventure activities can facilitate within the National Curriculum for Physical Education:

Opportunities for Outdoor Adventurous Activities
Within Physical Education National Curriculum

The author, Liz Myers, discusses how outdoor education and adventure programming principles develop many critical life-long skills – such as strengthening relationships and building self-esteem – and encourages kids to participate in outdoor/adventurous activities.

To my mind, the article once again highlights the benefits of integrating an adventure programming framework to your curriculum, using the expansive outdoors as your classroom, and most importantly, inviting students to play, trust and learn.

If you have a minute, be sure to check out many dozens of adventure-based activities here, most of which can be lead outdoors.
