Outdoor Classroom

An immersive educational experience packed with hands-on activities and scientific exploration.

Outdoor Classroom

Our activities are aligned to support Earth and Life Science Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) standards.

Outdoor Classroom registration for the 2024-25 school year is now open!

During their day at the Gorge students will participate in a variety of educational stations and activities selected by their teacher and enjoy lunch in the beauty of nature. 

Students will be provided with a workbook, clipboard and pencil when they arrive at the Gorge. The workbook reinforces what they learn and should be taken back to the classroom for review and, possibly, even given a grade. 

Available Outdoor Classroom Stations:

  • Weather, erosion and fossils
  • Biology - Water lab and food chain/web
  • Water quality testing
  • Landforms in watershed
  • Land ecosystems - orienteering
  • Water cycle
