Backyard Nature Teacher Workshop

Backyard Nature Teacher Workshop

Discover how looking at nature in your own backyard – or schoolyard – or even in a work of art – can inspire rich learning opportunities across the curriculum. Jessica Allen will share creative yet simple ideas for nature study using “the vacant lot and the small backyard.” Observation-based art activities will be included. Letters for teachers to submit for Act 48 credit will be provided.
