This is AMAZING!!! A video from an outdoor kindergarten in Norway where these are mainstream schools. They are outside the entire day 3 days a week in all kinds of weather. This sheds a little light on why outdoor learning is crucial. Most of all, I love Meg's explanation on her post below the video. I would love to put my kids in this school!
