2018 Middle School Outdoor Classroom Project

5 months ago

East Clarendon Middle/High School, Clarendon County

EC Quad Outdoor Classroom Project

 East Clarendon middle and high school students created an outdoor classroom to cultivate learning among the student population and the surrounding community. Plants, flowers, and vegetables were grown in raised garden beds, providing natural habitat for wildlife and food for classroom animals. Organic matter from vermicomposting, compost tumblers, and compost bins enrich the soil in the raised garden beds. A weather station was installed in the outdoor classroom, including instruments for tracking precipitation, temperature, humidity, and barometric pressure. The data will be used by students to understand the relationship between weather conditions and plant growth. Finally, natural habitat areas were established using bird feeders, bird houses, bird baths, a small splashing pond, and a rock garden where students can learn about wildlife species and ecosystems.

The small community surrounding East Clarendon Middle/High supports the school by volunteering time, monetary donations, loaning/donating tools and supplies, and providing specialized knowledge. Moore Farms and Botanical Garden also provided assistance during the project.
