Nature's Classroom - McKinley 6th Grade Camp ~ Outdoor Education 2014
 
Our 6th Grade students are enjoying their "outdoor education"
this week at Nature's Institute Classroom in 
Mukwonago, WI.    


Located in southeastern Wisconsin, Nature's Classroom Montessori is set on
380 acres of pristine woodlands, wetlands, and prairies.  
The built environment is designed to bring this natural environment inside.

The goals of Nature's Classroom Montessori are to foster independence and to support children in moving toward a mastery of self and the environment. Our classrooms are prepared Montessori environments  designed to encourage children in their self-directed discovery of the world. Interest-based activities encourage children to develop a love of learning and trust in their own ability to learn.
