The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) invites K-2 teachers to an upcoming workshop that will provide free training on improving conservation education in their classrooms, home-school classes, or youth groups. The Discover Nature Schools: Nature Unfolds workshop will take place on Friday, March 30, from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. at the MDC St. Louis Regional Office at the August A. Busch Memorial Conservation Area, 2360 Highway D in St. Charles.
This workshop will prepare educators to teach Nature Unfolds, the hands-on, standards-based unit for grades K-2. Teacher’s guides and classroom sets of student guides and science notebooks are provided for free, and eligible schools can receive non-competitive grants for field experiences and classroom materials that support Nature Unfolds. Space is limited and participants must register by March 27 to ensure enough supplies.
MDC’s Discover Nature Schools program provides no-cost curriculum units to teachers and schools in the state of Missouri. Curriculum units are available for preschool through 12th grade and are aligned with current Missouri Learning Standards.
