Skogen i Skolan

Skogen i Skolan, or Forest in School’s, mission is to support teachers with teaching materials and activities to improve students' understanding and knowledge about forests and their attitudes toward science and technology, and by encouraging outdoor activities that stimulate interest and curiosity in nature. The produced materials and activities are in accordance with the national curriculum, as a supplement to the ordinary teaching in all levels of the comprehensive school. The pedagogical idea is to combine as far as possible theory and practice to improve students’ skills and knowledge by using fieldwork in a local forested area, called school forest.
