Take a look at this recorded Zoom Teacher Training with Jan Cohen of UrbanMathTrails to learn how to implement the Trust for Public Land’s “Math in the Playground” K-5 lessons and activities in your schoolyard. Linked to curriculum standards, these activities promise to engage your students, while developing your students’ math skills as they return from remote learning. These lessons, which utilize gardens, game courts, and play equipment will bring a novel approach and newfound joy to your Outdoor Learning plans. In this video, we talk through several lessons, discuss implementation alternatives, share new ideas for Fall planning and answer questions. Please share with your school communities, submit questions, and RSVP to Tiffany.Briery (at) tpl (dot) org for more information about supporting Outdoor Learning in your playground.
