ENTICE Teaching Young Learners about Birds
9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
We see birds nearly every day. They are accessible to learn from and can be enticed to come to your school yard. They can instigate curiosity in young learners. How do you teach young learners to observe and learn about birds? At this workshop, we’ll provide you with activities, resources and hands-on experiences to help you teach about the birds around your school. Relevant correlations to Next Generation Science Standards and Illinois Early Learning and Development Standards will be provided and discussed. Although targeted to educators of grades prekindergarten through four, educators of other grade levels are welcome to register but may need to adapt the materials as appropriate. Professional Development Hours are available. Sponsored by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, this workshop is part of the ENTICE (Environment and Nature Training Institute for Conservation Education) program.
