Experiential learning is the practice of learning through doing. It encourages the student to have first-hand experiences with the materials, rather than learning through someone else’s experiences in textbook or lecture. It’s a learning style that has been studied thoroughly for decades, and one that is proven to be beneficial for all ages of students.
It’s easy to start leveraging experiential learning for children both inside and outside of the classroom.
