The aim of the project is to empower our little students’ understanding of early Mathematics using the outdoors. Through such a project the children will experience the world beyond the classroom as an essential part of learning and personal development. These experiences will help children make sense of the world around them, make use of the natural resources already available and use the outdoor space. Out of the classroom learning facilitates authentic and experiential learning. This project will be integrated with education for sustainable development.
The project will serve as an extension to the successful project “Creating Maths resources from Packaging Waste” which was realized during European Week for Waste Reduction last November 2016. As the Proposal which was presented last October 2016 entails:
“The activities planned during this week will pave the way to further motivate stakeholders become more aware of the waste they produce and become more creative in designing various other resources using packaging waste. By the end of this scholastic year, we also intend to continue developing the project by investing in outdoor recycled Maths resources which will help our students become more investigative from an early age. This will include a Maths shed using recycled pellets and wood, giant floor resources and a shop using various packaging materials.”
