Outdoor Explorers (Grades K-2)  
Outdoor Explorers teaches children about the world through exploration of their natural surroundings. Each week will begin with a new nature theme.

We'll be outside the entire hour. Outdoor Explorers live by the Norwegian phrase: “There is no bad weather, only bad clothing!” This class believes children learn best through hands-on experiences that build self-esteem and encourage a love of nature. Class meets under the stairwell, then hikes the woods and trails behind Horace Mann.
