International School Grounds Month
May is the annual, global celebration of International School Grounds Month, an event that recognizes the importance of school grounds as special places that shape children and youth's experiences of the world around them. In anticipation of this event, we are pleased to announce the release of the 2018 edition of our free publication, the International School Grounds Month Activity Guide.
The Activity Guide is filled with hands-on outdoor ideas intended for children and youth, ages 3 to 18 years old. The activities in the book support learning across the curriculum, promote healthy lifestyles, and encourage play and exploration during free time and before, during, and after school. Many of the activities focus on ways to help kids understand the places they live in, build life-long skills, and collaborate with their communities to improve their school grounds.
