Our approach can be adapted to any space. We appreciate that many of you are not able to get to natural settings so we write these resources in the assumption you are working within your own school grounds and we give you ideas on how to bring the nature in by providing you with a handbook for every purchase. But if you do have a natural space then this approach will help you use it better. See founder, Sarah Seaman, in action modelling some of our ideas off our resources here.
Our resources include activity packs, idea packs, planning and presentations. All of ou rresources use The Muddy Puddle Teacher Approach. See more about this here.
