Professional Development for Teachers

Take It Outside!
Maryland’s environmental literacy standards stipulate that students have meaningful outdoor experiences during each school year. How can teachers use their schoolyards to enhance and reinforce curriculum? Adkins Arboretum educators will lead elementary and middle school teachers through a variety of hands-on outdoor education activities that can be used across disciplines and grade levels. Activities are designed to complement Maryland State Curriculum with an emphasis on STEM and Next Generation Science Standards.
