Teachers, we have some great activities that can stand alone or be added to your lesson plans on environmental education and natural resources, social studies (geography and history) and reading. These activities were created with you in mind. They provide you with support so you can easily integrate them into your plans and they’re wonderful tools to connect students to Shorewood’s resources.
Free activities for Teachers:
Use of an Enviroscape Interactive Watershed Model and teaching aids
A poster of the Milwaukee Watershed Map and teaching aid
Shorewood’s Simple Solutions Guide flyer and teaching aid – One can be provided for each student
All the Way to the Ocean by Joel Harper – a wonderful story about how watersheds work
A Fresh Water 101 in-class presentation by a Shorewood Waters Project representative
Native Plants and Birds, Bees and Butterflies – COMING SOON
These tools are an awesome and easy way to provide fun and important content for your students while fulfilling teaching standards. We can also provide support in getting your classes outside to Lake Michigan at Atwater Beach or the Milwaukee River at Hubbard Park for beach cleanups, water quality testing or native plants and butterflies at the new Monarch Waystation.
