Schools across the globe are being encouraged to teach at least one class outdoors on Friday 17th June to as part of Empty Classroom Day – a campaign to celebrate and inspire outdoor learning and play, an ethos that we at eibe have long championed.
Take a look at the Empty Classroom Day website for inspiring lesson plans and posters. Why not organise a treasure hunt or go pond dipping or create an open-air theatre for children to act out a favourite book?
Visit https://emptyclassroomday.org.uk/resources/lesson-ideas/ to browse their fantastic ideas for making sure your class have a memorable time learning outdoors.
Keep Britain Tidy are now the lead organisation behind Empty Classroom Day in the UK and are supported by the Dirt is Good team from Unilever.
You can sign up at https://emptyclassroomday.org.uk/ to be part of a movement that encourages children to get outdoors at school every day.
Make sure Empty Classroom Day is a date in your 2016 diary! #DirtIsGood
