Pennsylvania Professional Development: Making Tree Plantings Meaningful with Students

During this three-day course (August 4-6, 2020), explore ways to ensure your student action projects are effective and incorporated into your curriculum. Each day we will explore ecosystem health through water quality investigations, how trees and plants reduce stormwater impact, and create connections from your classroom to the watershed. We will discuss how to involve students in the process from planning to implementation. And you will find ways to connect projects into your curriculum and Meaningful Watershed Education Experience (MWEE) framework. Take part in various investigations to see how you can incorporate tree plantings through various subject lenses to foster creativity and cross-curricular connections.
