Description: Georgia 4-H EE has provided high quality field studies for 30 years. Come learn how this program can enhance the three R’s in your classroom! The Georgia 4-H Environmental Education Program has provided high quality day & residential field studies for 30 years. Using the outdoors as a classroom without walls, K-12th grade students can experience specific ecosystems of our five 4-H Centers located from the mountains to the sea! Understanding that the best field studies enhance & complement in-school curricula, Georgia 4-H EE has correlated all of its programming to the Georgia Performance Standards. We have also paid attention to the 3 R’s: rigor, relevance, & relationships. Our programs are a natural fit. Participants will learn about our tradition of excellence as well as how to plan an effective field study. Door prizes will be provided. (Room 110)
