Are you a:
• Classroom teacher looking to incorporate more Environmental Education into your lessons?
• Non-formal educator hoping to incorporate more grade level standards into your programs?
• K-5 pre-service teacher looking for more resources to implement Science Methods?
If you said “Yes!” to any of these questions, then a Project OWL Workshop is the place for you. Project OWL (Outdoor Wonders and Learning) is an Environmental Education-based curriculum guide written and designed to match North Carolina Essential Standards for elementary grades. It focuses on Science, but also meets Math, Social Studies, and English-Language Arts when applicable. During the workshop, participants will experience Project OWL activities and learn more about how they work on their own, or as part of a larger lesson. This workshop also spends time on creating programs and lessons using a Learning Cycle method and provides opportunity for participants to update an old favorite, or create a whole new one!
This workshop is led by Michelle Pearce, School and Public Programs Coordinator at The North Carolina Arboretum and Project OWL Coordinator. The workshop can count for CEUs for classroom teachers and/or Criteria 1 or 3 credit for the NC EE Certification.
Fee: $10 for members; $20 for non-members
