J.L. Lomax Students Take Science Lesson Outside

By giving students the opportunity of real-life experiences and immersion, learning becomes easier. Even from inside, students were able to see and observe angiosperms and gymnosperms growing outside their classroom window.

Mr. Edwards, the science teachers says, “It was a special treat to see their different reactions to exploring the science vocabulary firsthand.” At the end of the lesson, students were able to gather pinecones (gymnosperms) and pluck luscious orange satsumas (angiosperms) from branches of the trees growing on the school property. The best thing about the outdoor classroom is the excitement it brings to learning about science concepts. First hand, real-world experiences are the key to today’s educational programs.
