Project WILD: Connecting Children & Youth with Nature

Project WILD’s mission is to help students learn how to think, not what to think, about wildlife and the environment. All curriculum materials are backed by sound educational practices and theory and represent the work of many within the fields of education and natural resource management from across the country. This workshop will help educators engage students in the learning process through effective and fun environmental education lessons. Age of youth served: Grades K-12. Workshop Objectives:
– Provide structured nature-based activities for their students so the students feel comfortable outdoors;
– Understand how to meet educational and developmental goals and standards for their students by using the activities included in the Curriculum Guide;
– Determine if the learning objectives for each activity in the Curriculum Guide were met for the students by using the specified assessment methods; and,
– Be motivated to go outside with students!
