Learn how to use Project Learning Tree, Project WILD, Flying WILD, and Project WET to teach your students about nature and science. This is a great opportunity to obtain training and manuals for all four of these curricula in a single workshop.
Each curriculum focuses on a specific resource area (forests, wildlife, and water), teaches many disciplines, and incorporates STEM and civic skills. The inquiry-based curricula meet CCSS for science, social studies, and language arts. They are cross-curricular and adaptable for grades K-12.
Teachers, substitute teachers, non-formal educators, home-schoolers, youth group leaders, and anyone wanting to bring the environment into their classroom is welcome.
For background on the curricula, see www.plt.org, www.fishwildlife.org/projectwild, and www.projectwet.org.
