3 workshops to help incorporate wildlife, habitat lessons
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Educators interested in incorporating wildlife and habitat lessons into their curriculum can participate in three workshops this winter held by the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department.
The first, Growing Up WILD, is to help children ages 3 to 7 to explore wildlife, forests, and the world around them. It will be held on Monday, Jan. 20, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at department headquarters in Concord.
The Below Zero workshop is for educators who want to incorporate winter ecology into their lesson plans. Developed by the Canadian Wildlife Federation, it is 46 lesson plans that can each be adapted for any grade or subject. The workshop will be held on Saturday, Feb. 1, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the department’s North Country Resource Center in Lancaster.
Project WILD and Aquatic WILD Workshop is for educators of students in all grades who want to incorporate wildlife and habitat lessons into their classrooms, helping students determine “how” to think about wildlife, not “what” to think about wildlife, organizers said. The program will explore terrestrial and aquatic environments, their inhabitants, and their relationships with students. The workshop will be held on Saturday, March 7, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Concord.
Preregistration is required.
