You can make a lifelong difference with your early childhood students by introducing them to the wonders of the natural world! How do you do it? Where should you go? What tools do you need? What are the liability issues? These questions and many more will be answered during this workshop targeted to educators of grades prekindergarten through one. We’ll go on a nature hike and will feature the Field Trip Pack from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR).
You’ll take away numerous resources to use with young children when learning about nature. We’ll discuss correlations with several Illinois Early Learning and Development Standards in science and Next Generation Science Standards. Professional Development Hours are available. This workshop is part of the ENTICE (Environment and Nature Training Institute for Conservation Education) program from the IDNR. Register at https://www.enticeworkshops.com
