Nature Day with Miami Early Childhood Education students April 18th 2018 @ Hueston Woods!
Nature Day
Nature Day is an authentic project based day of learning. Three professors combine for a day of integrated outdoor learning. The students engage in learning through content area explorations, hiking, and woodworking. 
 
  
Students use real tools to complete projects as part of the embodied cognitive approach to learning used in Assessment Class.
Here is a nice write-up about what we did last year.

 Permaculture & Urban Gardening
We have been experimenting with creating different types of vertical pallet gardens. These could be used by schools or in urban design for growing spaces, food production, or observations and experimentation.

 Vertical Gardens
                

Free-Standing or Wall Mounted

Tower Gardens
We have begun working with Nancy the Nutrition Nut (aka. Nancy Parkinson) to explore how to integrate tower gardening, nutrition, and curriculum standards. We received our first grant from Butler Rural Electric Cooperative to support Nancy's work with children in Talawanda Schools! Thanks Butler Rural Coop!!
