Outdoor Learning - Students OutsideNature is the perfect classroom. It provides endless opportunities for students to learn about the real world in meaningful ways. There are also a wide range of academic, health and wellbeing benefits from learning in the outdoors; from reduced stress and anxiety, to increased feelings of happiness, as well as improved memory, focus and creativity!


Learning in nature = Connection to nature = conserving nature


This collection of over nine lessons allows secondary teachers to reap the benefits of outdoor learning without sacrificing curriculum requirements. Each lesson is mapped to the outcomes of the Australian Curriculum and contains all the tools required for teachers to feel fully prepared when taking their class outside. 

These lessons cover Mathematics curriculum outcomes for Years 9 & 10. Throughout these lessons students will further develop the ability to represent and summarise data, and display and describe data graphically and compare and analyse results.


These free-to-access lessons cover:

  • Five number summary 
  • Observing and recording outcomes of an experiment
  • Comparing data sets
  • Area, perimeter and volume calculations
  • Primary and secondary data
  • Experimental two step probability 
  • Relative frequencies and probabilities of ‘and’, ‘or’ events
