Teaching Environmental Sustainability

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Every child lives in a watershed and, thus, is a watershed steward. The Teaching Environmental Sustainability curricula is unique in that it allows students to visualize the impact of human action on his/her watershed using an online modeling application called Model My Watershed. It also permits students to engage in land planning exercises that allow them to immediately see the potential impact of changes on their watershed. By linking processes that act at the local scale to conditions that occur at a larger scale, the Model My Watershed web application lets students link their own observations of nature to scientific models of complex environmental systems. This workshop will allow you to try out the Teaching Environmental Sustainability activities and see how they would fit in your school. Project materials including Model My Watershed application are free and available online.
