P009-8343.1F19 - Integrating Nature and Science into Early Childhood Education

Course Details
Course Description: Where better to earn your P-Credits than at the Zoo! With time outdoors and in, this course takes a hands-on approach to support early childhood educators in weaving more science and nature into their classrooms and learning centers. We will break down research and best practices about engaging children with the scientific process and the natural world. Teachers will be provided with knowledge, strategies, concrete examples, and collaborative workshopping to create practical, realizable plans for bringing nature and science to their pre-k and early childhood students. The environment is in desperate need of assistance, kids spend the vast majority of their time indoors, and now more than ever, the role of early childhood educators to engage and excite young children about the natural world is critical for the future of our planet.
