PLT Environmental Experiences for Early Childhood
Workshop – May 15th, 6:00-9:00pm, Green Bay
“Exploring nature is a complete sensory experience, and early experiences with the natural world have been positively linked with the development of children’s imaginations and their senses of wonder and curiosity – important motivators for lifelong learning!PLT’s Environmental Experiences for Early Childhood encourages children to explore, discover and communicate in expressive ways, and provides an introduction to environmental education at a key developmental period in children’s lives.”
“Developed with preschool educators and early childhood specialists, the guide is designed for educators who work with children ages three to six. It offers more than 130 experiences that engage children in outdoor play and exploration. Topics include exploring nature with five senses, meeting neighborhood trees and experiencing trees through the seasons. An accompanying CD features music from children’s musician Billy B. Brennan that encourages children to sing, dance and move.”
This professional development event is super exciting for me! As you all know early childhood environmental education is where my passion lies. And this is a workshop I have wanted to attend for some time.
