The two-day workshop will take place at the Green River Regional Office of the Wyoming Game and Fish Department, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Friday, June 20, and Saturday, June 21. The Game and Fish office is located at 351 Astle Street in Green River. Preregistration is required. The cost is $45 per participant and includes six curriculum guides, activity materials, and snacks. Participants will have to provide their own lunch.
Additional teacher resource materials are being provided through donations from EXXON and FMC Minerals. One hour of PTSB credit is FREE. One hour University of Wyoming continuing education graduate credit is available for $50.00.
Each curriculum focuses on a specific resource area: forests (PLT), and wildlife (WILD). The inquiry-based, PLT and WILD curricula meet CCSS for science, social studies, and language arts; are cross-curricular, and adaptable for grades K-12. This workshop specifically meets the needs of secondary education, but the activities are easily adaptable to elementary grades. Teachers, substitute teachers, non-formal educators, home-schoolers, youth group leaders, and anyone wanting to bring the environment into their classroom is welcome and encouraged to attend.
There will be opportunities at this workshop to network with fellow educators and local professionals. Participants will go through various activities from each curriculum and learn how to implement the activities in the classroom and into their curriculum. Workshop participants are advised to wear comfortable shoes and dress for the weather, as the workshop is guaranteed to be non-stop and action-packed, with outside and indoor activities.
