Super easy, small commitment, GREAT EVENT!

Outdoor Learning at Innocademy!

Screen Shot 2018-09-30 at 11.50.23 PM

Innocademy is very excited to be partnering with the Outdoor Discovery Center in Kindergarten, 2nd grade, and Middle School to move toward nature-based education.  By bringing the students outside, we are able to connect what we are learning inside the classroom to the real world around us.  There is so much great research showing the benefits of nature-based education.  To that end we are working toward getting students outside more often!
