Teacher Professional Development: Tracking Energy — Seed to Table to Compost (Part 2 of 3)

November 9 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm


Calling all 3rd through 8th grade educators in Whatcom County: Tracking Energy is a three-part professional development series designed to help educators understand food systems; growing, producing, processing and disposing of food. Learn to help students draw connections to climate change and food justice issues. Register by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, October 29th!

Register for the series

This series will focus on the question: What are we throwing away when we throw away food? Educators (playing the part of a student), will walk through multiple sequential transferable lessons that incorporate creating and revising models, data collection and analysis, and designing solutions. Educators will spend time in multiple learning environments. This series is designed to support 3-D NGSS performance expectations for the 5th grade band endpoint, though the altered material will be demonstrated to reach middle school. The lessons in this course are sequential and build off knowledge learned in previous lessons. Attendance for all three days is requested. This opportunity is a collaborative effort of RE Sources and Common Threads Farm.
