Pencils, Crayons, Glue, and the Environment
I know more than my fair share of teachers, so this post is for all you molders of young minds.
In recent years, the National Wildlife Federation has promoted legislation, including No Child Left Inside, that keeps nature and outdoor activity on the agenda of schools and allows children to explore and learn about the natural world. To go along with these efforts, the NWF has put together some information, including lesson plans and other resources, for teachers to use when taking their classes through environmental topics. Most of the information applies to K-8 students, but some addresses grades 9-12.
