8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
You can make a lifelong difference with your early childhood students by introducing them to the wonders of the natural world! How do you do it? Where should you go? What tools do you need? What are the liability issues? These questions and many more will be answered during this workshop targeted to educators of grades prekindergarten through three. We’ll go on a nature hike and will feature the Field Trip Pack from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR). You’ll take away numerous resources to use with young children when learning about nature. Staff from the Illinois Early Learning Project in Champaign will lead the workshop.
