Our colleagues at the Partnership for the Delaware Estuary (PDE) hosted an “Urban Waters Alive” Teacher Workshop at the Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education on August 9. The workshop was developed especially for educators, including youth-serving facilitators and leaders that work with children in a variety of settings. During the workshop, both organizations demonstrated fun, hands-on activities that can be recreated in a class or outdoor setting to teach and engage youth about our waters.
Each learning activity provided insight into the following topics:
The workshop was a valuable way to meet and engage with other educators; talk about our classroom experiences; have fun with markers, spray bottles and edible treats; and enjoy nature’s wonders at the Schuylkill Center. Thank you to our partners at the Partnership for the Delaware Estuary (PDE) and the Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education for hosting this professional development opportunity.
Here at TTF, we look forward to using these new tools with our watershed residents of all ages. If you’re a teacher or youth leader interested in working with us to engage and educate your students across our watershed, call us at 215-744-1853 to talk about how we can work together.
