Congrats to my mom, who was recently recognized for her efforts to take her classroom outdoors and help students learn in the REAL world!

A great first step towards helping students appreciate why they should care about the environment!  More info on the habitat at their site:

They have really taken advantage of building this habitat as a resource for learning.  The teachers have thought very creatively about how they can incorporate outdoor projects a a theme across disciplines!
