Not All Classrooms Have Four Walls

Not all classrooms have 4 Walls

Hey there. Steve Whewell with ExcellED Montessori.  Today’s topic…not all classrooms have 4 walls.

Look. A classroom is a wonderful place for education.  I’ve supervised classrooms for the last 20 years and have seen children achieve…but let’s be real.  Life does not happen in a bubble and some of the greatest learning takes place not when a child walks into a classroom…but rather when a child walks out of it.

There is an infinite amount of lessons outside just waiting to be discovered.  Outside we can capitalize on a child’s natural desire to learn.  The simple statement, “Ok children, let’s go outside,” immediately stirs children to action and ignites their sense of exploration.


  • Social skills are enhanced.
  • Fresh air fills their lungs.
  • Movement is free and unrestricted.

Taking children outside to enrich their learning experience…just…makes…sense.

And when it comes to comprehension, there’s a huge difference between being taught a lesson and actually experiencing it.  When you are taught to take care of animals because you read a story about it in your textbook, you understand it’s a good thing to do.  But when you find an injured bird on the playground and nurse it back to life, you know you made a difference and you learned a lesson in biology and empathy that you will never forget.

Learning cannot be constrained in a textbook.

Learning cannot be bound in a building.

Not all classrooms have four walls.
