Transforming science education through research-driven innovation
April 15, 2020
BSCS Science Learning has developed this resource to help students, parents, and teachers get away from technology and formal learning and spend some time connecting with nature. Spending time connecting with nature and experiencing the life going on around us can give the brain a rest. Even if you don’t have access to much outdoor space, you can still connect with nature.
NOTE: When considering spending time in nature, we urge families to carefully follow regulations and public health guidelines that apply to their locations.
Why It’s important to spend time in nature: As the recommended resources below explain, there is evidence that spending time in nature is good for the immune system and the nervous system.
Recommended Individual Practices and Exercises (approx. time needed): We recommend the following activities that can be done daily as an anchor during this time of uncertainty (or any time).
