If you enjoyed the first "Teambuilding in the Classroom" workshop then come join SHESC for MORE!!!
If you didn’t get to attend "Teambuilding in the Classroom," but are interested in how adventure education merges intellectual, social, physical, and emotional learning and enhances student learning, responsibility, and interpersonal skills - then come join us on Wednesday, March 30!
Learn how adventure education can enhance any classroom content (not just physical education) and build social-emotional skills even if a ropes course isn’t available. Participants will participate in low and high ropes course elements, as well as on-the-ground games, initiatives, and challenges.
Register for the workshop HERE.
