Resources from Environmental Education - 4/2/20

The SDW Environmental Education team will be sending weekly updates (on Thursdays) with resources and ideas for you to share with students and families. Content may come in the form of videos, lessons, read-aloud stories, or project ideas. Feel free to utilize as much or as little as you would like.

If there are specific content areas that you are interested in us exploring, or if there are specific tools that we can create to best support you and your students, feel free to reach out with suggestions!
