Resources for Outdoor Learning

Outdoor Adventure Activities form only part of an outdoor learning experience. In addition to adventure activities such as archery or canoeing, here at Talkin Adventures we use lots of relatively simple activities to help engage young people with the world around them.

Our experienced instructor team have a wide range of short activities up their sleeves and over the coming weeks we will be adding these as online resources. Feel free to use them with your group.

How tall is that tree?

Ever wondered how tall a tree is? This is one to try if you have a bit of space - it doesn't work so well in a dense woodland but would be great in a playground. You could even use this method to measure the height of a building, or practice with children.

How old is that tree?

With counting the rings on a fallen tree being the most accurate way to know the age of a tree, here we have a simple method to estimate the age of a living tree. This is a simple and fun way to roughly know the age of a tree. It is a great way to compare the ages of the trees in a woodland. Use a tape, string, or even experiment using arm spans for a quick and easy way to find the oldest tree. Tree hugging is always fun!
