Early Childhood Workshop
will be held at the
Children's Learning Foundation
1021 Hwy 414
Mountain View, WY
We celebrated 40 years in Kemmerer recently (March 12) with 40 participants in our early childhood workshop! Thanks to facilitators Katie Butts-Theule, Lucy Diggins-Wold and Hazel Scharosch.
This year Project Learning Tree is celebrating its 40th anniversary! 40 years of using the forest as a window on the world to teach kids how to think, not what to think about the environment. In 1976 the United States celebrated its Bicentennial and natural resource managers and educators from the then-American Forest Institute (now Foundation) and then-Western Regional Environmental Education Council (now Council for Environmental Education) developed and launched the first PLT workshops in ten states. Wyoming PLT is proud to say that they were one of those states!
Wyoming educator, Ellie Levins recently completed the PLT K8 online course. She is an art teacher and was able to incorporate the activity Looking at Leaves into an art lesson plan. Congratulations to Ellie on completing this course and receiving 1/2 a Professional Teaching Standards Board (PTSB) credit!
Visit shop.plt.org if you are interested in completing an online PLT course. The cost for the K8 workshop is $40 and educators are eligible to receive 1/2 a PTSB credit for completing the course. And we always welcome requests for in-person workshops for groups of 10 or more people.
