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.
Global issues face us all; whether its population growth, sustainability, biodiversity, media literacy or the ecological footprint currently being left behind, there’s no better time to seek out activities that encourage and empower students to think globally. If you’re an educator looking for such lesson plans, then this is the event for you! Utilizing Facing the Future’s “Engaging Students through Global Issues” materials, this activity-based lesson curriculum for middle and high school teachers contains 40 inspiring lessons that can be used alone or in conjunction with Facing the Future's student textbooks. These standards-aligned, inspiring lesson plans are designed to help students understand complex global issues and sustainable solutions. Each lesson offers creative tools for students to take action in their local and global communities. The lesson plans consist of everything you need from start to finish, including materials needed, timing, step-by-step instructions, assessment questions for intermediate and advanced students, action project ideas, reproducible handouts, and additional resources for further information! The event is scheduled for Friday, November 12th, 2010 from 9 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. CST. Registration costs for attendance are $15 per person, and pre-registration is required.
