Studying the environment outdoors integrates subjects and motivates students at Huntington Area Middle School (Pennsylvania). A study of 40 schools that use the environment for interdisciplinary education found improvements in student achievement, communication, problem solving, strategic thinking, attendance, and behavior. Consequently, the environment is a valuable tool for meeting the rigorous goals of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. (TD)
