Outdoor Education has value for students beyond becoming familiar with their natural world. At CRE, one of our approaches to education is an integral approach. This approach reflects the cohesive nature of God and His creation using multi-disciplinary thematic units of study organized meaningfully around important ideas. When studying important ideas in nature, or outdoors, students can build rich schemas on which they can build for years to come.
The article, "Nature Provides Exceptional Multi-Disciplinary Learning Opportunities," gives educators a window into the value of learning happening in the context of the outdoors.
