A Beautiful Place for an Outdoor Classroom Where Project-Based Learning Thrives
Kathy Greene and Robbie Saal spend several hours each week with their Kindergarten students exploring, working, and playing in their outdoor classroom named Turtle Town. When the children first visited this beautiful outdoor space, they asked, “Why is the classroom called Turtle Town?” Mrs. Saal then shared with the class a piece of Renbrook history. Many years ago, when a Beginning School class was working in this outdoor space, they found a box turtle. They had fun imagining turtles living there and decided to name the space Turtle Town.
