Hundreds of schoolchildren will be using the outdoor classroom this year to learn their regular curriculum by observing nature. Hands-on learning and student-led investigation can lead to academic improvement and higher standardized test scores in reading, mathematics, science and problem solving. Plus it is fun! What a great way to learn.
