Experiential Learning: Using Parks as Outdoor Classrooms will provide 2nd – 8th grade teachers with academic and administrative tools to conduct science lessons using a New York City park as their outdoor classroom. Focusing on forest ecology in the fall, the training will equip teachers to plan and implement safe and effective outdoor lessons that provide students with hands-on experiences relative to their in-class curriculum.  Training pays special attention to the recommendations by the NYC DOE for excellence in environmental education particularly regarding place-based education and real world experiences involving investigation, analysis and problem solving. Content is drawn from the City Parks Foundation Seeds to Trees program for elementary and middle school students, activities are carefully aligned with the NYS Science Learning Standards and ASPDP credit is an option.
