Description: The Riverside-Corona RCD invites formal, informal, public, private or homeschool, teacher teams, administrators, support staff and curriculum coaches to join us for a free, virtual ‘Watersheds to the Sea’ Project WET workshop!
Our ‘Watersheds to the Sea’ theme will focus this training on exploring standards-based activities and tools to engage your students in the study of local watershed connections to the Pacific Ocean in addition to skills, concepts and teaching practices at the heart of NGSS and Common Core standards.
Over the course of the day, you will enjoy exploring standards-based activities and tools to help students understand connections between their local watersheds and the sea.
The training will include an introduction to the use of Project WET standards pools and to RCD citizen science and stewardship opportunities that would allow students to apply what they learn.
The interdisciplinary activities of Project WET include real-life scenarios, use of data and emphasis on critical thinking. Project activities support and expand on existing curriculum and provide strong foundations for STEAM, Project-Based and Service-Learning programs.
Participants will receive a copy of Project WET Guide 2.0, free access to the Project WET online Portal and Project WET ‘Watersheds to the Sea’ standard pools, an overview of RCD resources to engage students in local stewardship or citizen science opportunities and an option to receive CEU credits.
