While schools are getting ready for another year and dealing with the great mask debate, many school districts are voting on this hot topic.
According to Fox News, a new school opening in Tennessee is trading traditional classrooms for the great outdoors. The Nature Kin Farm and Forest School is welcoming students in Chattanooga next week and every single class will be taught outside, no matter what the weather conditions are, in all four seasons, with the exception of a few cooking classes and “any other pursuit” that may require an indoor setting.
Fox News says, Students will still learn science, math, language arts and history, as well as nature-focused classes like gardening, but they’ll be doing it on a 50-acre farm instead of a school building.
The campus is the Rowell family farm at Lookout Lake and it includes wetlands, a creek, a lake and forests and the school takes inspiration from the “forest school philosophy” that started in Europe in the 1950s.
