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