Open the door to exciting and fun learning adventures!

Whether pastures or skyscrapers are outside your door, the world around you is rich with learning opportunities. Walking trips are a terrific?and inexpensive?way for children to explore and experience their community. Use children's interests as starting points to plan walks that are meaningful and engaging, and let children's natural curiosity and wonder help guide their learning as they investigate neighborhood gardens, markets, and even construction sites.

With 27 nature, community, and concept walks, Hey Kids! Out the Door, Let's Explore! promotes children's early learning. Included with each walk are vocabulary words and related children's books; a list of suggested items to bring along; and tips to extend children's learning before, during, and after the outing. You will also find planning and preparation materials, sample permission forms, and guidelines for carrying out safe and educational walking trips.

Influenced by the Reggio approach to expose children to their community through inexpensive walking trips.
