Randolph County students spend the afternoon learning outdoors


Fourth-grade students at Midland Elementary School in Elkins got to spend some extra time outdoors walking, listening, and learning with the Walking Classroom.  

The school received grant funding for a curriculum book and audio players for each student, preloaded with over 100 educational podcasts. Students headed outside this afternoon for their sixth outdoor class and are happy to get a break from the classroom.

“We learn about Greek mythology, tornados, our body’s slimy shields and it just helps us get outside and exercise, get fresh air, and learn,” said Fourth-grader Brennan Rexrode.

After each podcast, students head into the classroom to take a quiz on what they learned.  Teachers say students benefit from the increased activity and educational content
