Four Corners School of Outdoor Education

The Four Corners School Website has a section devoted to outdoor lesson plans of a wide variety. The side-bar allows you to narrow search results and look for lessons for a specific Grade level (K-5, 6-8, 9-12), school subject (art, language, physical education, etc.), topic (animals, archaeology, anthropology, etc.), and types (team building, games, material, conference material). The wide variety means that the outdoors can be ingrained into a students education from a young age and children will have am opportunity to learn to love and be passionate about the outdoors. The variety of lesson plans allows for teachers of all subjects to use the website.

Many of the activities could be made more difficult to accommodate a higher level of learning. Other activities could be modified to create a knowledge review trivia game.

All in all, I think the website is a decent way to create outdoor lesson plans for learning at all stages of live.
