Northey Street City Farm says
This workshop will:
• Demonstrate how outdoor experiential activities can be linked to the curriculum in English, Science, Geography, Maths, and the Arts;
• Give examples of how the Australian Curriculum cross-curriculum priority area of Sustainability and simple themes of ecology can be embedded in teaching across the Learning Areas;
• Introduce you to approaches from Deep Ecology and Place-Based Education that you can use with your students to increase their ecological literacy and stewardship;
• Explore how these approaches can support students to have the knowledge, understandings and skills to engage in creating a more sustainable world.
The workshop is focused on primary school teachers, but the material can also apply to secondary teachers.
