Summary/Abstract: The outdoor activity took place in the special week. Before describing the way of doing these activities we ask ourselves why should we organize outdoor activities? Outdoor classes offer offspring many opportunities of expanding their knowledge and develop some skills in a natural environment; teachers can let their students learn through hands-on experiences by having direct contact with nature. By being part of this project, students learned how to understand,appreciate and respect the environment, to understand that the natural classroom does not have walls or limits as the natural light boosts their confidence and broadens their horizons. They also developed their way of thinking by exploring: I do, I understand. These kids are the next generation of responsible and conscious adults! The activity was meant to be a didactic route to show the need of closure with nature. Students need to be involved by teachers, parents and society.
