A Montessori Outdoor Classroom to Honor Our Students and Nature
Help me give my students a water flow table and fort building materials to complete our outdoor classroom and enable learning to occur in nature every day!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Students at our school come together from many different backgrounds and abilities to create a beautiful community that we call home. We have both self-contained Montessori classes and self-contained gifted classrooms, as well as our mainstream classrooms, so we are able to meet a large variety of learning styles and student needs.
My students are curious about how the world works, and I try to foster that curiosity with a project-based curriculum in hands-on learning experiences.
In our indoor learning areas and our outdoor classroom, you will find engaged, excited, and caring students all working toward a common goal.
The water flow table will provide an engaging way for our students to learn more about the flow of water, our earth, and nature while also enjoying time in our desert environment. Allowing water play gives our children greater access to outdoor play and learning time.
Since we live in a hot and dry climate, we are always looking for interesting ways to get our kids outside, and both the water flow table and fort building materials will allow us to achieve that goal.
The fort building materials will allow for creative construction and engineering by our students, and as a bonus, they can be used both in the new outdoor classroom and inside on those days that are too hot to play in the sun.
