Instructions:

  1. Discuss the question: How can we take care of nature?
  2. Tell the learners that they will be going on a picnic.
  3. Explain to the learners what happens on a picnic.
  4. Have the learners decide what they will need to bring on the picnic.  Items will depend on if the picnic is indoors or outdoors.
  5. Pack for the picnic and have a wonderful time.
  6. After returning, discuss the ways that the learners took care of nature.  For example: picked up garbage, left nothing behind, did not bother the wild animals, stayed on the path, etc.  If the picnic was indoors: turned on lights only if they were needed, used a reusable cup or water fountain to drink from instead of a water bottle, recycled garbage, etc.

Reflections:

  • I am able to select items for a picnic.
  • I am able to make decisions.
  • I am able to find other children to play with.
