Free Workshop: “Watershed Teaching Tools,” for anyone working with students in San Francisco — teachers, aides, after school staff, garden coordinators, youth group leaders, and parent volunteers.
October 25, 9:00 am.-3:00 pm., Mission High School, 3750 18th St, San Francisco
Join us for this fun, hands-on workshop which will help you engage your students with dynamic science investigation, language arts, and games, packaged as ready-to-go student lessons tied to the Common Core Curriculum. Make environmental education meaningful and cross-disciplinary by addressing current real-life issues.
Morning session: Explore human impacts on our watersheds, discover how we can all prevent pollution from schools and streets to the bay or ocean, and investigate the roles of bugs in the garden. Student lessons will be suitable for the classroom, garden or school yard.
Afternoon session: Reducing runoff strategies, rainwater harvesting and rain garden design.
Bonus: Rainwater Resource Fair at noon, and tour of the rainwater harvesting system in the Mission High garden. Fair and tour open to the public as well as educators.
Take home a complete electronic curriculum plus extra goodies!
Free organic lunch for participants.
