Event description
CTLE credit available for a Teacher Professional Learning opportunity on Chancellor's Day at Queens Botanical Garden

About this event

For teachers of students in grades K-8.

Thinking about food? Where does it come from and what do you eat?

Think about your cultural capital around plants and food sources as we explore QBG and its environs. Utilize various foods to learn science concepts, build community, and more.

All participants will be given time to reflect upon pedagogy and make plans for their classrooms.

This event is limited to 20 teachers and will take place rain or shine.

Participants will receive 6 hours of CTLE credit for this PL.

We ask that participants bring their own lunch.
