New Hampshire Project Learning Tree

Creating and Teaching Schoolyard Habitats Part 1

Sat, September 30, 2017

Schoolyard investigations and habitat projects address multiple environmental and educational concepts that benefit landscape, learning and community. The often under-utilized schoolyard spaces can be transformed from blank stretches of lawn or beaten dirt to ecologically sound landscapes—alive with wildlife and native plants, providing opportunities for authentic learning experiences integrated into the curriculum, scientific inquiry, hands-on minds-on interdisciplinary learning, peer mentorship, and community involvement. Discover how to make the most of YOUR school grounds.
We recommend teams of 3 or more attend and work together to define and build a project. Teams can include teachers, parents and community members.
Participants will receive planning materials to assist and guide the planning process after the workshop.
After this workshop, you will be prepared to apply for a NH Schoolyard Action Grant.

This is a 2-part workshop that you can take either one day or both.
In part 1, you will:

  •  See examples of successful schoolyard habitat projects.
  •  Perform the steps for carrying out a project on your own site.
  •  Practice conducting a school site assessment.
  • Use Project Learning Tree’s Green Schools Investigation materials.
  •  Generate ideas for enhancing the site.

This workshop will take place September 30 at Deerfield Community School.  Fee for Part 1 is $25.00

This workshop is sponsored by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service New England Field Office through the NH Partnership for Schoolyard

If you are interested in attending both days please register on the Creation and Teaching Schoolyard Habitats Part 1 and Part 2 event.
