The holiday season is upon us, and though the fall temperatures are here, and Thanksgiving is right around the corner, Wolf Creek National Hatchery is proud to offer a great environmental education workshop for the month.
On Friday, November 13th, 2009, Wolf Creek will be hosting a
Facing the Future Climate Change Workshop, an educator
training focusing on science, action and engagement!. This 6 hour
workshop, facilitated by Facing the Future
(http://www.facingthefuture.org/), is designed for 6-10th grade
educators (but others are welcome) who are interested in building in
science, social studies, math, and governance lessons about climate
change into their classrooms. This workshop will teach you ways
to engage students in understanding climate change from multiple
perspectives and empower them to create their own solutions, and
the overall session will also provide hands-on, interactive lessons for
teachers to take part in and learn the science teaching skills and
content knowledge necessary to teach about climate change and its
interconnections to the environment, society, and the economy. There
is a $10 registration fee to attend, which includes all programming,
materials, curriculum guide, lunch and snacks. Pre-registration is
required, and the workshop is scheduled for 9 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. CST.
