YES! Winter break is upon many of us, the holidays are in full effect, and you want to spend this break, well, taking a break!

My classroom teaching experience is with high school life science students at a small charter school. I am now home with my own young kids and use the same principles of experiential learning with them as I did with my secondary students. This blog post is all about how I do that; how I adapt the experiential learning process to work for all ages.
