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. 
Lodging is available for Friday and Saturday nights. Contact jessica.halverson1@gmail.com to reserve.

Cost: $100, plus $25/night if staying at the lodge. Price includes six curriculum guides, activity materials, & snacks. The guides are jam-packed with exciting, ready-to-use activities, fully indexed and cross-referenced by subject matter, grade level, time requirements, skills, etc. Should you register and be unable to attend, your deposit is fully refundable up to 3 days prior to the workshop. 1 PTSB credit free; UW continuing education graduate credit is $50. (pending approval)
