THE NEXT BRIGHTWATER TEACHER WORKSHOP (OF THE SAME NAME) WILL BE IN FEBRUARY (DATE TBD).
Are you a K-8 teacher interested in teaching your students outside? Are you looking for meaningful ways to use your schoolyard as a natural classroom? In this workshop, you will learn skills, strategies, and content information to plan and teach an outdoor science field study in your schoolyard. Join the education team from IslandWood at the Brightwater Center as we explore:
