Environmental Learning Cards

Course Overview
The Environmental Learning Cards activities contribute directly to a wide range of educational and development aims for young people and cover four elements of Outdoor Learning that can be delivered on a school/ youth club site and surrounding environment: The resource cards are divided into four areas of learning:

AWARENESS AND EXPERIENCE – Encouraging young people to experience the natural environment using a range of senses and to look at some of its component parts.

EXPLORE AND UNDERSTAND – Following on from first steps into the Environment comes the desire to explore it further and understand the many relationships that makes it what it is.

SUSTAIN AND CONSERVE – In developing an understanding of the Environment young people are encouraged to look at their impact on it and to develop a sense of stewardship in their long-term relationship with it.

CREATE AND SHARE – Appreciating our time in the natural environment and expressing how we feel towards the natural environment.
