Greenbrier Elementary School students take their classroom outdoors

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR)

 

An elementary school in Charlottesville is getting creative with outdoor learning.

First-grade students at Greenbrier Elementary School got a special treat Tuesday, October 19: The entire grade gathered together outside, thanks to a new donation of picnic tables.

“We’ve gotten all of our first grade classes together, which we rarely are able to do because of covid, out in this outdoor learning space to do a great pumpkin investigation,” teacher Sarah Hathaway said.

GES is moving more activities outdoors so students can gather in larger groups.

The tables were donated by the Public Education Foundation of Charlottesville-Albemarle.
