New learning garden for Topeka students

TOPEKA (KSNT) –  A Topeka elementary school is showing off a new classroom. But, this one is outside!

Students and staff at Whitson Elementary held a ribbon cutting Monday morning for their new classroom. The first phase is now complete.

It’s being described as a “learning garden”.

It even has outdoor seating, a chalkboard and other features include a wishing well and a solar-powered fountain.

The designer of the outdoor area hopes it will create an atmosphere to engage students in the learning process in a variety of ways.
