Black Botanists: Building a Legacy in Your Classroom 

Cleveland Botanical Garden

Adult - Beginner, Adult - Intermediate, Adult - Advanced

$100 per registered teacher

Diversity is an important concept in the natural world and in the scientific field.

Learn how to incorporate the Growing Black Roots: The Black Botanical Legacy lecture series developed by Holden Forests & Gardens and Black Botanist Week Committee into your classroom to address topics in science, social studies, diversity, careers and environmental justice. The free resources in this project support teachers in incorporating the lecture series into their classroom curriculums.

The activities are targeted at middle/ high school and are to be used after the lectures are viewed. They are interdisciplinary in nature with science, social studies, math, language arts and career connections. The activities are divided into three sections, Comprehend and Connect, To Do, and Follow Up. 

The in-person session will meet Saturday, March 26 from 8:00 am-5:00 pm at the Cleveland Botanical Gardens. Two additional synchronous sessions via Google Meet Wednesday, March 23, and Wednesday, March 30 both from 6:00-8:00 pm are required. A final project is due April 13.
