OUTDOOR CLASSROOM

At the Shore Stories blog she posted her outdoor learning class room. She asked for others to share their outdoor learning space too. So here is ours.

This is what school is all about. LEARNING

Our outdoor class room.

The assignment:

1. Re-create the digestive system using objects you can find in the yard, barn or garage.
2. Must work as a team
3. Be able to give an oral presentation on how the digestive system works.
4. Have a little fun with it.

They used garden hose, rocks, footballs, socks, sticks, pool hose, wrench, plug and more garden hose. It may not look like much. But, I was impressed. They worked as a team, were creative, had fun and most of all they LEARNED.

Do you have an outdoor learning room? I would love to hear from you.

That was a cool idea for learning the digestive system! I like reading posts that give me ideas. Thanks for sharing!
