In this workshop we will dig into the revised BC curriculum to explore the multiple opportunities for meaningful, hands on learning in your own school-yard. Participants will broaden their understanding of how to develop and support the big ideas, core and curricular competencies in a garden classroom. Specific examples of cross-curricular learning will be shared, along with inspiring stories of student engagement, diversity and inclusion. Just about anything can be taught in a garden… come explore how you can support happier, healthier and more motivating academic learning outdoors! Enroll in all three workshops as a short course, and receive a 15% discount!
