Workshop Description:

Wildlife of North Dakota Featuring Pollinators is an education workshop for teachers, environmental educators, or anyone that works with youth. This workshop features all new materials.

Educators will learn about the different types of Wildlife found throughout North Dakota and the habitats in which they are found.

Students will examine different animal species, both alive and specimens to get an up-close look.

Participants will also receive the new Urban Pollinator curriculum and explore the three distinct sections of this curriculum leading them from information to positive actions in their community. They will explore the urban pollinator gardens on site with inspiration to develop their own pollinator garden in their community or at their school. Different instructional methods will be used to teach across the curriculum integrating subject areas.

The North Dakota Habitats curriculum will be used as textbooks for this course.

The course is suitable for both elementary and secondary teachers. The workshop will be fun and fast paced with many hands-on activities educators can use in their classrooms, discussion of classroom and curriculum integration, and walking field trips, weather permitting. All supplies are provided.
