Outdoor Education in the EYS

By Debra Cota, EYS Principal

Throughout the year the EYS has different learning opportunities that allow students and teachers to utilize the back hills of Nido's campus to extend the learning to the outdoors.

The first graders have been studying about animal habitats. The teachers planned an outing, along with Zack Beaty, Nido's Outdoor Education Coordinator, to take a walk in the hills to discover any possible habitats for animals. They saw horses and cows, looked for tarantula holes, and spoke about rabbit burrows as well. It was an inspiring opportunity for the students to see first hand what natural habitats look like right outside Nido's campus.

In the other grade levels within the EYS, the teachers and students venture into the hills at different times throughout the year, dependent upon the curriculum being taught. Typically the PK through K2 students will take a walking field trip to the cooperative farm located within Nido's hills. This gives the students an opportunity to explore nature, discover the plants blooming, the animals that live within the hills and anything else they may encounter during their walk.

All these opportunities allow the students to connect directly to nature in an authentic manner. They not only learn about the outdoors they are also given chances to use their bodies while discovering the outdoors. Teachers and students within the EYS utilize the outdoors frequently to provide a variety of learning experiences.
