Nixa Adopt-a-Class:  Climate
On Thursday, February 10th, Eric Street and Bonnie Crawford met with Ms. Fairchild’s 6th grade class at Summit Elementary School in Nixa to instruct on the topic of “Climate.”  They discussed the temperate climate of southwest Missouri and how residents can use the natural light, native plantings, and cool breezes to passively light, heat, cool, and ventilate the built environment.  This was part of an ongoing lesson plan to improve students’ understanding of what it means to be “Green.”
