Outdoor Learning and Edible Education During the School-Year
PEAS provides direct outdoor and/or edible education to students and experiential professional development for teachers through year-long partnerships with schools in Austin.
Outdoor and/or edible education specialists work at a schools with the same students and teachers for an academic year. Lessons utilize outdoor campus features such as gardens, wildflower meadows, and outdoor classrooms or teaching kitchens to engage kids in hands-on opportunities which cultivate and refine skills in science, math, social studies, language arts, health, and more. By participating in lessons, teachers learn and practice classroom management skills and how to utilize the outdoors to bring academic content to life!
