Born Learning Trails

We know children are not entering school with the skills needed to succeed. That's why we support initiatives like Born Learning Trails.

Born Learning Trails give parents and their children opportunities to engage in fun, physical learning activities in any outdoor or indoor setting: trails, parks, schoolyards, museums, libraries. The interactive trail contains signs with instructions for simple games that prompt any adult into turning an everyday moment into a learning opportunity. 

Prompts include:

  • Think of words or names that start with A, B, or C.
  • Tell stories about yourself or your family. Begin with, "When I was little..."
  • Pretend to move like an animal. Walk like a duck or hop like a frog.
