Aiken Elementary Participated In National Outdoor Classroom Day

OUTDOOR CLASSROOM DAY- Aiken Elementary is a Green Steps School, and on Thursday, November 7th students participated in Outdoor Classroom Day.  Teachers took students outside for a variety of lessons.  Mrs. Osborne's 1st grade class did some planting, and Mrs. Girardeau's 1st grade class participated in a scavenger hunt.  Mrs. Caldwell's 5th grade class teamed up with their Kindergarten buddies in order to help Mrs. Nuessle's students create their names in nature.  Mrs. Matson took music outside and Ms. Nelson held her library classes outside all week.  Several other learning activities took place, including nature walks, reading, and writing.  It was a great day to take learning outside!
