Land to Stream: Virtual Workshop for Early Childhood & Elementary Educators
Thursday, June 4, 6:00 – 8 :00 p.m.
Act 48: 2 hrs.
Online via Zoom
Fee: FREE. Pre-registration is required.
Audience: Pre-service teachers (undergraduate students), in-service classroom teachers, & non-formal educators specialized in early childhood and elementary school education (PreK-5). This workshop is designed as an introduction to environmental education (EE) for new or early-career educators, or as a refresher for current educators.
Are you an early-career educator or a pre-service teacher (undergraduate student) looking for fresh ways to engage PreK-5 students in the natural world? Are you a current teacher or non-formal educator seeking a refresher on environmental education (EE) for early childhood through elementary learners? Join Stroud Water Research Center and Pennsylvania State Parks for Land to Stream — on the screen!
In this virtual online workshop, participants will be introduced to both digital and hands-on activities that will help you integrate EE into your classroom. We will guide you through an exploration of free online resources for EE on land and in streams, model in-class activities such as owl pellet dissection and camouflage creations, and take you on a virtual stream study of aquatic macroinvertebrates. Meet us online for this 2-hour exploration of EE for early childhood through elementary learners (PreK-5)! Five lucky participants will be mailed small EE giveaways. Please note: This workshop is a repeat of the April 29 From Land to Stream Workshop for Pre-Service Teachers. The content delivered in both workshops will be roughly equivalent.
You will receive an email with connection information and a link to first-time user help when you submit your registration. Please plan to connect 5-10 minutes before the call if you are a first-time user, as there will be a brief installation process.
