The average American boy or girls spends as few as 30 minutes each day in unstructured outdoor play and more than seven hours each day in front of an electronic screen. In modern America, the opportunity for kids to get outdoors and experience nature is becoming more and more important. There are many benefits to children that spend time outdoors experiencing nature…
- Outdoor play increases fitness levels and build active, healthy bodies.
- Exposure to environment-based education significantly increases student performance on tests of their critical thinking skills and improves scores on standardized tests.
- Children’s stress levels fall within minutes of seeing green spaces and has been shown to reduce ADHD symptoms.
