Pre-Conference Workshops

The Nature of Teaching

The Nature of Teaching is a signature ANR Purdue Extension program that provides K-5 teachers and extension educators with hands-on, standards-based resources to get youth outside and learning in nature. Workshop participants will learn about the three core areas of this program-wildlife, health and wellness, and food waste-and act out some of the activities from the lessons. All participants will walk away with a collection of resources to take back to their classroom. The Nature of Teaching resources can also be found online at https://ag.purdue.edu/extension/nature/Pages/default.aspx‚Äč.
