Promoting Professional Development and Best Practice in EE
It’s no secret that good environmental education is interdisciplinary, hands-on, and relates to the real world. Perhaps less known, these characteristics also describe the key drivers of STEM-learning (science, technology, engineering, and math). Environmental education has the opportunity to create a pathway for implementing effective and engaging STEM-lessons both in and outside of the classroom.
Early Childhood EE
Environmental education begins with our very youngest learners: infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. In these early years, environmental education is rooted in play and inquiry and is focused on introducing children to nature and the environment in ways that are connected to the places where they live and foster positive feelings about the natural world.
