May is Get Outside Month in the TDSB.
Over the last number of years, the Toronto Outdoor Education Schools have worked together with the Urban Indigenous Education Centre (UIEC). Through this partnership we have reviewed TOES outdoor programming, collaborated on program development and worked together to further our understanding of Indigenous programming and ways of knowing. We have strengthened the connection between land-based outdoor programming and Indigenous ways of knowing. The Get Outside lesson plans this year are a product of this partnership and reflect the work and professional development that has occurred with TOES and the UIEC.
