New Outdoor Classroom Planned In Luverne

May 13, 2014, 5:15 PM by Leland Steva

New Outdoor Classroom Planned In Luverne
LUVERNE, MN -

The Luverne School District broke ground on a Nature Explore Outdoor Classroom on Tuesday.

The goal of the classroom is to get students back outside doing things like climbing on tree stumps or planting a garden, along with art and music projects. This classroom will be one of only 213 in the country.

"We find that kids aren't spending as much time outdoors. They're spending more time doing stationary activities and being outside, and we know that kids learn better when they have hands-on experiences and they are more excited to learn when they are outdoors," early childhood teacher Angie Janiszeski said.

It took two years of fundraising to get to this point.

Classroom construction will begin this summer.

Administrators hope it will ready in time for the start of the school year.
