Teaching Students with Nature in the City
Join us for a workshop specially designed for teachers in urban schools: nature is everywhere!
Studies show exposure to the outdoors and even just images of nature improve learning outcomes. Environmental Education can help teachers meet curriculum standards while connecting children to meaningful experiences with nature. Activities include relevant environmental concepts that fit into your curriculum goals.
We will share how to leverage lessons about Atlanta’s urban forest and ecology to engage your students. If your school is currently a Trees Atlanta Urban TreeTracker (UTT) participating school, this program will work in conjunction with our in-school lessons. All APS teachers and educators are invited to attend this workshop (registration required). Workshop participants will learn how to enroll new schools into the UTT program and receive in-school educator visits during the school year, plus other benefits.
