We’ll make a splash as we explore the fascinating organisms that live in Illinois’ wetlands. We’ll learn about their life history and identification and will put the skills to practice as we visit a wetland on the grounds of Gardner Camp. Hands-on activities will be conducted, and you’ll receive supplemental educational resources. Relevant correlations to Next Generation Science Standards and Illinois Early Learning and Development Standards will be provided and discussed. Although targeted to teachers of grades prekindergarten through four, other educators are welcome to register and attend the workshop but may need to adapt the materials as appropriate. Professional Development Hours are available. This workshop is part of the ENTICE (Environment and Nature Training Institute for Conservation Education) program from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.
