Virtual Project WILD workshops

I wanted to share an exciting opportunity with you. The Wildlife Education Coordinator has two Virtual Project WILD workshops: Growing Up WILD and Project Wild.

The Project WILD curriculum supports the 2018 Virginia Standards of Learning objectives for Science by providing background content for teachers and activities that help teach science standards using creative instructional methods. Details about each workshop and registration forms are included below.

This optional professional learning opportunity is designed for general education teachers; however, we highly encourage collaboration with your special education co-teacher to complete the module, if applicable. Once you have registered, you will receive your login credentials for this self-paced learning opportunity.

Be prepared to discuss the workshop and activities at our meeting on November 13th (tentative). Please complete your registration by Friday, October 30th. 

Pre-K through 2nd Grade Teachers: Growing Up WILD is an early childhood education curriculum that builds on children’s sense of wonder about nature and invites them to explore wildlife and the world around them. Through a wide range of activities and experiences, Growing Up WILD provides an early foundation for developing positive impressions about the natural world and lifelong social and academic skills.

3rd through 5th Grade Teachers: Project WILD is an interdisciplinary conservation and environmental education program that focuses on wildlife and habitat. The goal of Project WILD is to develop awareness, knowledge, skills, and commitment resulting in informed decisions, responsible behavior, and constructive actions concerning wildlife and the environment. 

By completing all components of these virtual workshops, teachers will be given: *K-12 Guide *Certificate of completion for recertification points *Supplemental materials *State-wide collaboration with other Project WILD educators*

There are two different registrations forms, one for each category.

Please make sure you fill out the correct grade level.
