As a scout of Troop 295, based in Plano, I am beginning to work on my Eagle Scout Project. My project will be based at Murphy Middle School in Murphy, Texas. I will be building an outdoor classroom that will provide an alternative learning environment for 6th-8th grade students. This outdoor classroom will consist of 6-8 benches placed and bolted into a square formation. This will give students the opportunity to face any direction. I will also provide a rolling whiteboard that can be kept inside, and rolled outside for use. This takes away the opportunity for graffiti. This outdoor classroom will give students a more fun and different way to learn, contrary to the normal classroom setting.
