Water covers over 70% of the Earth! In our state alone, there are over 86,000 miles of streams and rivers! Join educators from Wildwood Park and DCNR- PA State Parks to explore water habitats from wetlands and streams to oceans. Discover aquatic plant and animal adaptations, prepare to get wet examining aquatic organisms, determine the importance of riparian zones and investigate real-world issues affecting earth’s water systems. Participants will receive the Aquatic WILD K-12 Curriculum and Activity Guide with over 40 hands-on activities that can help educators incorporate place-based, STEAM activities about wildlife, people and the aquatic environment into their curricula or group programming.
This workshop is for any educator interested in teaching about aquatic wildlife & ecology such as classroom teachers, non-formal educators, college students studying to be teachers (pre-service), school administrators, homeschool teachers and youth leaders. Morning refreshments and snack provided. ACT 48 hours are available for PA Certified Teachers. The workshop will be held indoors and outdoors.
Aquatic WILD is part of the Project WILD program and uses the science-based, award-winning format of the Project WILD K-12 Curriculum and Activity Guide to address concepts, principles, and issues relating to aquatic wildlife, habitat and ecosystems, as well as actions to sustain these important resources.
