Green Our Planet's STEAM Curriculum Teacher Training
Green Our Planet currently trains CCSD teachers how to teach the 800-page, PreK-5 STEAM curriculum through 15-hour training sessions that take place 6 times each year. These trainings are approved by the Nevada Board of Education, and teachers earn 1 PDE credit or 5 CUs.
During the 7.5-hour face-to-face session, teachers learn basic gardening tips and teachers get to explore, try out, and prepare to integrate the lessons created by Green our Planet aligned to Next Generation Science Standards to be used in their outdoor learning gardens.
At the trainings, teachers also complete a project to benefit their outdoor classroom space and community and learn from experts on a variety of topics like composting, pollinator gardens, and more. Sign up for teacher training.
