What is Living Schoolyard Month?

In May each year, the International School Grounds Alliance (ISGA) calls on schools around the globe to take their students outside to celebrate their grounds. Green Schoolyards America, a member of the ISGA Leadership Council, is helping to spread the word in the United States. The state of California has adopted this international event and now celebrates Living Schoolyard Month each year in May.


Green Schoolyards America and the International School Grounds Alliance have produced a set of resources in celebration of these May events. They include written activity ideas from 123 organizations in 17 countries and are available for free, below. We hope they inspire you to use your grounds to the fullest in May—and throughout the year!
