The Outdoor Classroom at Walnut Farm Montessori School
- Our classroom in Nature
- As part of our classroom experience we offer an outdoor classroom. The outdoor classroom provides a space for learning about nature and the practical life work of gardening, raking, weed pulling, and other outdoor tasks. With the direction of a credentialed Montessori guide, the outdoor classroom is rich in Science lessons such as bird watching and naming, insect and leaf investigations as well as rock classification.
This outdoor prepared environment is available to our primary and elementary students. Each primary classroom has a back door which allows the children to flow in and out, making this a free choice throughout the morning work cycle. The elementary children have designated days and various responsibilities in the outdoor environment. In addition to their student roles, the elementary children serve as leaders of the school community and caretakers of the various gardens. The outdoor classroom is an exciting extension of our classroom environments.
