Have you ever used a wonder wagon in your outdoor learning program? Whether you use an actual wagon, a backpack, a bin or a rolling cart, if you bring supplies outside with you for your outdoor education program then you need to know the most important thing for your wonder wagon.

Kat from Je Me Demande joins us today all the way from Kenora, Ontario as one of the first educators who truly embraced outdoor learning and the use of a wonder wagon. She is telling us her number one tip based on years of experience and the most important thing for your wonder wagon. 

Whether you go out daily or once a week, the use of a wonder wagon is going to make your life so much easier! It’s perfect for last minute inspiration, keeping track of materials and helping students become more independent in their learning. 

Really, Kat’s number one reminder is as simple as the concept itself. The most important thing to remember for your wonder wagon is:

By removing hurdles and obstacles to our planning, we are significantly more likely to actually follow through. If carrying out supplies and keeping track of them is frustrating to you, it’s easy to just say “forget it” and bring nothing out at all. 

Kat’s must have staple wonder wagon items: 

> Clip boards
