Green Schoolyard America and our partners at the International School Grounds Alliance publish a set of free, downloadable books filled with ideas for outdoor learning, play, and health. This set of 250 hands-on activities and curriculum ideas were contributed by 188 organizations across the USA and around the world. See link below to access the free activity guides! 


All of the activities in these guides cover a wide range of ideas that support learning across the curriculum, promote healthy lifestyles, and encourage play and exploration during children’s free time, before, during and after school Many of the activities also focus on ways to help children and youth understand the places they live, and connect to their neighborhood’s unique natural, geographic, and cultural context.
