Learn about the wonders of nature that are right outside your door no matter where you live.
By honing your observation skills, you can teach your students to appreciate the world around them, develop their observation skills, practice inquiry techniques, and discover connections between living things. These techniques will be useful in a classroom setting on your school grounds or as an independent learning project at home. We will read “The Unseen City: The Majesty of Pigeons, the Discreet Charm of Snails & Other Wonders of the Urban Environments” by Nathanael Johnson and discuss and develop activities and methods for exploring our own backyards and schoolyards. Holden Forests & Gardens educators will share their expertise and knowledge on how to successfully observe the animals and plants in your neighborhoods, school grounds and how this can complement and support your classroom learning objectives.
