Nature`s Classroom

Each fall the 5th grade students at Jackson Street School have the unique opportunity to participate in a 3 night/4 day residential outdoor educational program called Nature's Classroom, located in Becket, MA.  Nature's Classroom is a non-profit organization started in 1972 that has earned wide recognition for its success integrating environmental education, active learning and community building.  Students engage in hands-on activities while exploring life in the outdoors, team work, science experiments and cooperative learning.  Currently all four of the Northampton Elementary Schools participate in this program.
