Learning Inside the Outdoor Classroom Holistic Life Schools

Peacemakers will engage in exploration & critical thinking in our outdoor classroom using Inquiry-Based Learning.

An “Under The Sun“ Outside Learning Experience

There is much to be learned inside an “outside“ classroom! Learning opportunities also exist outside of the school building. Our outdoor classrooms include fun and engaging opportunities for our peacemakers.




Outdoor Classroom

  • The outdoor classroom allows peacemakers to spend more time outside of the building where they can connect with nature and use innate (natural born) exploration, critical thinking and observation skills. The classroom supports the philosophy that children need and benefit from more time outside. The benefits affect development and optimizes physical health.
  • Peacemakers are also given the opportunity to tend to their class garden where they plant herbs and vegetables during this block. Peacemakers make the connection between gardening, whole foods and healthy eating.
