Researchers say children should learn more outdoors. Children spend too much time in classrooms to pass exams. Outdoor learning is important for social skills, health and development. It also gives a better quality of life. Researchers say that schools did not take the advice of important reports about outdoor learning. This means there is less outdoor learning today. The researchers want all schools to do more outdoor learning.
There are many benefits of outdoor learning for children. One advantage is that it builds confidence in children. They experience things like climbing trees. It also teaches children about the environment and to respect nature. There are also health benefits. Children exercise instead of sitting in classrooms or being at home with video games. It also helps with the problem of 'stranger danger'. Many children grow up hearing about this.
