China School’s Forest will be hosting TWO
Project Learning Tree Workshops for adults in April.
Each workshop will feature hands-on activities and lesson ideas for kids
ages K-8. Both workshops will
begin with a short introduction to Project Learning Tree and then we will head
out into the forest for interactive sessions with trained facilitators. Lessons
are interdisciplinary including connections to children’s literature and
language arts activities. If you are
an educator (formal or informal), community volunteer, scout leader, naturalist,
natural resource professional, land trust member, homeschooling parent or just
want to learn some great ways to teach kids about the forest, this workshop is
for you. Workshops are rain or shine
so come prepared for the weather. Sign
up by April 8, 2017. Space is limited to 20 participants.
Cost is $50 per participant and includes the
Project Learning Tree K-8 activity book with 96 lessons, opportunities to
network with resource professionals, tour the award-winning China School’s
Forest and gain new skills to make nature learning fun. Make checks payable to:
