HUDSON, TX (KTRE) -

East Texas students will learn more about nature. In Hudson this morning, community leaders and school personnel officially opened the new outdoor classroom and butterfly garden at Peavy Primary. This is all part of a program called project learning tree that provides hands on environmental learning activities in all fifty states.

"It's important for critical thinking skills, for wide variety of different advantages to student learning to bring children outside to learn environmental education and just learn practical skills to help them learn and think and be better students," Michael Murphrey, Staff Forester for Texas A&M Forest Services.

The new addition to the school was paid for by a government grant and donations by local supporters. The area will provide students with a way to get a hand on approach to multiple problem solving skills.
