Description: SACRAMENTO REGION EDUCATORS! Join Project WET and Project WILD for a hybrid workshop experience exploring activities to engage students in the study of our local watershed connections to the Pacific Ocean in addition to skills, concepts and teaching practices at the heart of NGSS and Common Core standards.
This training will begin upon registration interacting with Project WET activities at your own pace before engaging ‘live’ with Aquatic WILD at the Effie Yeaw Nature Center. The interdisciplinary activities of Project WET and Aquatic WILD 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.
The training will include a close look at the use Project WET standards pools by grade bands and their use as models to ‘Chart Your Own Course’ in using Project WET and WILD activities. The field day will also introduce you to local resources to engage your students in potential citizen science or stewardship projects – whether learning in class or at home with parents.
For a $20 registration fee, you will receive a copy of Project WET Guide 2.0 and Aquatic WILD, access to detailed NGSS standard correlations for both programs, access to the new Project WET standard pools, a socially distanced day exploring outdoors and an opportunity to receive CEU credit.
