The BIG Lesson
in the time of COVID
School is back in session after one of the most tumultuous several months in recent history. And whether you're teaching in person, online, or a combination thereof, teaching and learning most certainly looks differently this year.
One thing that remains the same: Here at Annie’s BIG Nature Lesson, we’re all about experiencing the wonder of nature and the outdoors!
Although our programming, too, looks different for now, we would like to provide some fun and educational activities to get kids and their caregivers outdoors and learning.
See below for a collection of lessons by reWired teachers, resources, and ideas for a school year unlike any other!
