Introducing Early Childhood Students to the Nature of Fall

9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Fall is a great season for young children to explore nature! There is so much to see and learn. Join us to discover what nature can tell us in fall. We will take a hike to put our knowledge to work and will feature the Field Trip Pack from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR). We will be incorporating animal tracks, animal signs, seeds and changes in leaves, too. We will show you how to support the teaching of several of the Illinois Early Learning and Development Standards for science and Next Generation Science Standards with your students. Although targeted to grades prekindergarten through two, all educators are welcome to register for the workshop, but the information may need to be adapted, as appropriate. You will take away numerous resources to use with young children when learning about nature. Professional Development Hours are available. This workshop is part of the ENTICE (Environment and Nature Training Institute for Conservation Education) program from the IDNR.
