Description: 

Project Learning Tree is a national environmental education organization that provides curricula and resources. The curricular materials help teach environmental concepts and issues through engaging, hands-on activities. This workshop will focus on the Environmental Experiences for Early Childhood curriculum guide, which provides an introduction to environmental education and encourages children from ages 3- 6 to explore, discover and communicate in expressive ways. The guide includes more than 130 experiences that engage young children in outdoor exploration and play. Teachers and educators who successfully complete a workshop will receive a curriculum guide and three professional learning units. Those who complete the training have the opportunity to apply for a small grant for environmental service-learning projects.
