Research indicates that this is the way people learn. Not just kids of all ages but adults too.
The more rich of an experience you have...using your whole self...doing, acting, seeing, feeling, thinking, questioning, talking, connecting...the better you learn. This is true across all curriculum.
The idea behind the pilot project is to connect learning (especially math) with a sense of exploration and inquisitiveness. Rather than being told what you should know, you discover it and you live it ...outside.
Be sure to follow the project along on Twitter with the hashtag: #scdsboutside
