Back to School Does Not Have to Mean Back Inside for Kids
Date:8/14/2013

Reston, VA (PRWEB) August 15, 2013

In the coming weeks, parents and children across the country will prepare for the return to school: supplies will be purchased, outfits will be picked out and end-of-summer vacations will be taken. Sadly, for many kids, the return to school also means an abrupt end to outdoor fun. Whereas summer break is synonymous with camping trips, backyard adventures, water activities and outdoor barbeques, school time can mean hours spent indoors, sitting at a desk, under bad fluorescent lighting.

To help bring balance to the lives of school kids (and improve their learning abilities at the same time), National Wildlife Federation has developed several programs to get kids outside and connected to nature at school. These programs get hundreds of thousands of kids outdoors on a regular basis each year, helping NWF meet its goal of getting 10 million kids outdoors on a regular basis by 2015.

1.    NWF Eco-Schools USA
NWF’s Eco-Schools USA is a hands-on learning program that rewards students and educators for “greening” their school by integrating sustainable practices and principles into their school and curriculum. As part of the program, kids take part in all kinds of fun and educational activities outside the classroom, like conducting an audit of their school, creating a recycling or composting program, planting a food garden, or creating a rainwater collection system. Through these activities, kids not only learn about their connection to the natural world, they get a break from the classroom and a chance to get a little dirty. Add in the benefits to schools like saving big bucks on energy costs, and you can see why more than 2500 schools have signed up to be an Eco-School in the U.S.
