Annual report Nynäshamns nature school 20017
Nynäshamn Nature School was founded in 1988 with its premises on Sjöudden at the lake Muskan in Ösmo. The Nature School receives children/pupils from the age of 4 up to 16 from all over the Nynäshamn municipality. The Nature School is a not a place, but a way of working based on outdoor education. The school classes have one nature school day a year – that’s when they work with research around a certain theme. Before each nature school day, the teacher prepares the class, and afterwards they do follow-up work at their own school. Each school grade has their own theme, such as small insects in the wooded hillside, the senses of mammals, ancient technology, fire and energy, sustainable future, etc. Spending a lot of time outdoors in the nature at an early stage will encourage the children’s sense for the nature. Consequently, they will care for the nature and understand our environmental problems.
