Aldo Leopold and Phenology (Appalachian Green Teachers Conference)
NovemberNov 11 2020 05:00pm - 06:00pm America/New_York
The Leopold Education Project (LEP) is an innovative, interdisciplinary, critical thinking conservation curriculum based on the classic writings of renowned conservationist Aldo Leopold. LEP teaches the public about humanity’s ties to the natural environment in the effort to conserve and protect the earth’s natural resources.
Leopold’s writings are both sound science and excellent literature, and they can be used as a springboard for meaningful environmental education. By experiencing the Sand County Almanac essays, along with relevant activities, students learn decision-making skills that will aid them as they develop their own land ethic and deal with current environmental issues. By exposing students to a variety of viewpoints and positions, they hone their problem-solving skills. LEP utilizes the outdoors as its learning lab.
The original curriculum focuses on middle and high school, but in this presentation, I will share how I have adapted the activities for kindergarten through second grade.
