Teacher Workshop: Project Learning Tree
Tuesday, November 8, 2016
9 AM to 4 PM
Project Learning Tree (PLT), an award-winning environmental education program, is designed for teachers and informal educators working with students in pre-kindergarten through grade eight. Upon completion of the workshop, educators will receive a free 400-page PLT activity guide full of interdisciplinary instructional activities that use the forest as a window into natural and human-made environments.
Educators will engage in hands-on PLT activities, gain confidence in nature-based teaching, and learn how to use PLT activities to help their students develop creativity, flexibility, and higher-order thinking skills. Teachers will spend half of the workshop in the new Museum Park—an outdoor learning space that interprets how people, land, and water have intersected throughout history in the Lower Cape Fear region.
Space is limited to 25; participants must pre-register by November 1, 2016. Call 910-798-4362 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is Geocaching?
Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game that uses handheld GPS-enabled devices to find geocaches (containers) hidden in different locations. There are currently over 40 geocaches hidden in New Hanover County’s parks locations.
