Orienteering for Teachers
Do you yearn to share the outdoors with your students, but feel limited by the space in yourlocal community? Orienteering is the perfect way to introduce environmental literacy to your students, while developing spatial awareness and mathematical skills required for mapping. Align the outdoors and physical activity with your social studies program in order to develop confident, self-assured students. Great at the junior level, all the way up to secondary students, show our youth the value of the outdoors in any space, especially their own backyards!
This is a one full-day workshop that enables educators to design a fun and educational program at their school. As a bonus, for a limited time, we will build an orienteering map of your schoolyard!
Please contact us for locations and dates.
