“Give the pupils something to do, not something to learn; and the doing is of such a nature as to demand thinking; learning naturally results.”

— John Dewey

The best way to learn is experientially while engaged in a purposefully framed activity that involves all senses.

  • Studies show that learning that takes place experientially while engaged in purposeful activities, involving multiple senses, has better retention.
  • Moreover, being in the outdoor reduces stress and further enhances learning.
Experimental Activities
  • Learning that involves movements raises the good chemicals for thinking, focus, and memory (noradrenaline, dopamine, and cortisol).
  • Excessive stress hinders our learning capacity. Learning in the outdoor reduces stress and thus increase our capacity to learn.
  • Emotions of fun and joy involved in learning increases attention and capacity to retain information.
