Attention Central Washington K-5 Educators!
Elk, coyote, and climate change – oh my! Get WILD about learning! Join us in discovering how to teach K-5 students about wildlife and conservation using hands-on, interdisciplinary lessons from Project WILD with special guests from the I-90 Wildlife Crossing project. Lesson plans have been aligned with national and state learning standards. Throughout the workshop, educators will have a chance to model lessons and to learn about local education resources. Upon workshop completion, all educators will receive the Project WILD guide.
This workshop is in two parts:
- Wednesday, April 13, 4 PM to 6 PM: an online content delivery session
- Saturday, April 16, 9 AM to 1 PM: an in-person* field experience and tour of the I-90 Wildlife Crossing
Participants who attend both sessions will receive:
- 6 Washington state approved STEM clock hours
- Project WILD guide
*The in-person workshop will take place on Washington State lands. The trails are unimproved, non-ADA trails that include uneven ground, mud, steep terrain, and weather-related hazards. We will meet at a location to be determined by our guest speaker to go to the I-90 Wildlife crossing. Further details will be communicated by the workshop facilitator prior to the workshop.
