Students, teachers embrace the opportunity to learn outdoors
Buena Vista's kindergarten classrooms, have a focus on experiential and land-based learning. "Children love to be outside," said kindergarten teacher Lisa Grabinsky Sparks. "However, the students are eager to go outside to learn, not just to play. 'What science are we doing or where are we going?' are the comments instead of 'it's playground time.' They want to learn more about what surrounds them, and they see school as a place to do this."
