Walking About…

Posted by on May 25, 2021

This year, we have been spending a fair bit of time walking around our neighbourhood.  Each time we go out, we have a purpose or focus in mind–often inspired by The Walking Curriculum.

We have tried:

  • Colour Walk
  • Lovely/Unlovely Walk
  • Opposites Walk
  • Shapes Walk
  • Where are We? Walk (using our neighbourhood map)
  • Hidden Number Walk
  • Numbers you can see Walk (house numbers, license plates etc.)

Today we did an ‘Underfoot‘ & ‘Overhead‘ Walk–we had two questions to think about as we walked…

  1. What do you notice about the world you are walking on???
  2. What is looking down on you as we walk???

One of the goals of these walks is to make us more aware of our surroundings…

“I contribute to group activities that make my classroom, school, community, or natural world a better place.”

This week your assignment is to go on a walk with your family.

  • Choose a purpose/focus…you can choose one from above, or make up your own…
  • Then walk about…
  • What do you notice????
