Stumpy Studio - An outdoor classroom project

  • We began the school year with a question...why doesn't more learning happen outdoors? We posed the question to some of our 5th grade students and we ended up with a great plan: Outdoor Classroom!

    It has been a work in progress throughout the year when time allowed.
