A fourth grade teacher has built an outdoor classroom as her students return to in-person learning during the pandemic.
With help from her family, Lindsey Earle, of Prairie Hill Waldorf School in Pewaukee, Wisconsin, built a structure for the 13 students in her class.
“As we were discussing plans for returning and things looked a little doomsday-ish, I proposed an idea that we build our own classroom,” Earle told “Good Morning America.” “Because what we know about coronavirus, is it spreads less effectively outdoors.”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says outdoor spaces are less risky when it comes to the spread of COVID-19. It may be more difficult to keep people apart indoors, and there’s less ventilation. The CDC recommends keeping six feet of space between you and others.
