LEARNING HAVING FUN!
THE DIDACTIC VALUE OF RAFTING
What rafting can do for schools
Year after year we verified the value of this activity:
- Work with and for the group
- Learn to listen, understand and put into practice
- Be self-sufficient and do team work from the beginning until the end
- Share a real life experience
- Face together the obstacles and fears
- Get excited for the run
- Discover new landscapes from a different point of view the Dora Baltea
- For the teachers is good to see the students in a different environment, without worrying about the safety of class.
