Bringing IN the Great Outdoors: Nature-Based Classroom

Help me give my students their Great Outdoors Classroom. The nature-inspired flexible seating will provide indoor Vitamin N. The tee pee, picnic table, rocking chair, and bench will make cozy places to read their nature/environmental books.

My Students

We are a fifth grade ELA classroom. My students are an energized bunch of kids, ready to learn, ready to create, and ready to give back to their community. They come to school every day with enthusiasm and ideas about how to make the world a better place.

Each year our class is focused around a year-long theme that incorporates a high-interest area, many service-learning projects, and character development.

Last year our theme was Dog Nation: Cultivating Character through Canines. Our classroom mantra was Positive Attitude With a Smile, or P.A.W.S. We spent the year learning about dogs, most specifically about service dogs. Students organized and facilitated many service learning projects. My students truly PAWed it Forward by helping dogs, but also by creating a community-wide awareness about service dogs and their daily contributions.

WE are Enviro Heores- Champions of the Earth. This year students will be focused on Encouraging Environmental and Ecological Awareness. We are ready to leap into learning and spreading the word about the importance of our environment and all that live in it.

Raising awareness on the most pressing environmental issues of our time is more important than ever.

My Project

My students will be spending the year engaged in learning about the great outdoors through environmental education in my ELA classroom. We will be delving into three topics: biodiversity, deforestation, and climate change.

Each of these topics, Biodiversity, Deforestation, and Climate Change, will include Outdoor Classroom Days to explore the great outdoors and make personal connections with environmental concerns.

While students will be getting their Vitamin N and combating nature deficit, I want to make their inside time as inviting and stimulating as their outside days.

I would like to transform their classroom into the Great Outdoors. By bringing the outside in, through nature-based decorations, I can truly inspire them to keep a naturalist mindset and appreciation for the the outdoor world as they learn. How exciting each day will be when my students walk into their classroom, The Great Outdoors!
