Why are walls, floors, and ceilings so inviting? What is the lure of a classroom when compared to the lure of being outside? It's quite surprising that more science students and teachers aren't clamoring "Let me Out!"
Science educators are frequently looking for activities to take them out of classroom settings. Such an activity evolved during a seminar at UNI called Innovative Biology Teaching. The challenge was to develop a teaching technique for a single concept using the outdoors at the particular time of the assignment. This was late October and early November, not a favorite time for many teachers to be pursuing outdoor activities. Nevertheless, there are many things that can be done in the outdoors during late Fall.
