Green Teacher webinars:
Winter & Spring 2019 edition
Using Progressive Skits to Teach Food Chains
with Emily M. Stone
Date and time: Wed. Feb. 13; 7:30-8:30 pm EST
Teacher-led progressive skits are a quick and engaging way to make food chains come alive for students aged six to adult. They provide a good mix of teacher control and student creativity and use repetition and humor to facilitate learning. They can be customized to work with any grade level or even mixed groups by purposefully selecting the level of vocabulary and detail you include. In her presentation, Emily will walk you through the basics.
Mindfulness and Creative Nature Play
with Dave Bauer
Date and time: Wed. March 6; 7:30-8:30pm EST
Mindfulness is inherently connected to children’s creative nature play. This also applies, by extension, to adults who facilitate and/or join children in their imaginative explorations within a natural setting. During this interactive webinar, we invite you to watch and learn or actively join the discussion by sharing your ideas, experiences, and insights about this topic. Dave will kick-start the discussion by outlining the benefits for both children and adults of being mindful and sharing time in nature.
Bird-focused Citizen Science
with Liza Barney
Date and time: Wed. March 27; 7:30-8:30 pm EST
Birds can be found in our backyards, schoolyards, local parks and communities, offering an exciting and accessible connection to nature all year long. Participating in citizen science is a fun way to help students get to know their local birds, and contribute to real-world science. This webinar will introduce entry-level, student-friendly Citizen Science programs for all ages and experiences, including Project FeederWatch, Great Backyard Bird Count, Schoolyard Bird Blitz, Project NestWatch and the Christmas Bird Count for Kids.

This webinar will help you learn how to take your students into the real world of science and conservation where they can practice science process skills in an authentic setting and meet inspiring people from their home community.
