This hike is designed to give educators a toolkit for taking students on a hike. We will provide handouts that outline a general lesson plan and provide TEKS. While on the hike, time will be allotted for a roundtable discussion where participants can give input and other ideas/strategies for conducting a successful hike for your students. Participants can also network and discuss the benefits of nature in education. Topics may include but are not limited to: Benefits of outdoor education, How you can include the outdoors into your curriculum, Using nature to aid in trauma therapy, How outdoor adventure activities enhance group dynamics, etc.
