Idaho Ecosystems with Project WILD, WET and PLT
In this interactive virtual class, receive training and award-winning materials from Project WILD, Project WET and Project Learning Tree, with which you will engage upper elementary students in learning about Idaho ecosystems. The class includes three synchronous Zoom sessions, with most course work done separately on your own. For part of the class, you will choose one of the curricula (WILD, WET or PLT) to explore in more depth and will receive that program’s comprehensive activity guide(s). You will leave the course with plans to use materials from the course with students, whether teaching in the classroom or remotely, both indoors and out.
CREDIT: One (1) optional professional development credit (for recertification) is available from your choice of Northwest Nazarene University or Boise State University, $60 payable to the university.
