September 29 4-5pm
Join us for a free professional development opportunity where Watershed Alliance Staff will contextualize the Watershed Explorer Challenge, offering support and guidance to teachers interested in using this resource with their students. Participating in this training makes teachers eligible for a concurrent live session where Watershed Alliance Staff will meet virtually with your class to discuss the content and process of the booklet. CTLE hours are available for this session thanks to the North Country Teacher Resource Center.
The Watershed Explorer Challenge booklet has 11 activities, rooted in Next Generation Science Standards, that are designed for young people to learn about watershed science and the Lake Champlain Basin. This is a free resource for youth and teachers. Participants will be asked to make a watershed model, identify the connections in an aquatic food web, determine stream health from benthic macroinvertebrate samples, and more. This is a learning experience for students and their families to engage in at their own pace. Students that complete all the activities in the booklet will be awarded the title of Watershed Explorer and receive a certificate. The challenge has been designed for middle-school-aged youth but can also be appropriate for younger and older students. For more information then go to our website
