Teachers are working with a nature coordinator to implement hands-on, nature-based science curriculum using the nature in their very own school yard. This program is funded by Calfire and sponsored by San Diego Children and Nature and San Diego Science Alliance and will provide teachers with the tools to continue this method of nature- based teaching well beyond the grant funding. Our objective is to promote the use of these lessons by teachers throughout the district and to show that these lessons are easy to use, engaging, hands-on and experiential. We also want to demonstrate that any schoolyard can be used for these lessons. One tree, by itself, is considered and urban forest and can support an ecosystem made up of plants and animals.<br /> <br /> Hosted by:<br /> Judie Lincer, Program Manager, San Diego Children and Nature Collarorative<br /> <br /> Special Thanks:<br /> Cathy Watson, 5th grade teacher<br /> Marianne Watson, 5th grade teacher<br /> and the children of Whitman Elementary School<br /> <br /> Produced for the San Diego Children and Nature Collarorative<br /> Funding provided through a Calfire grant<br /> Produced, filmed &amp; edited by Jim Karnik Films SEEDS: Eco-Logic for Teens at Camp Stevens (Julian, CA) tag:childrenandnature.ning.com,2012-04-06:2961135:Video:107295 2012-04-06T07:31:59.379Z Ashley Graham-Wilcox http://childrenandnature.ning.com/profile/AshleyGrahamWilcox <a href="http://childrenandnature.ning.com/video/seeds-eco-logic-for-teens-at-camp-stevens-julian-ca"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="180" src="http://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/2511812218?profile=original&amp;width=240&amp;height=180" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>SEEDS: Eco-Logic for Teens is a program designed to help junior/senior high youth undertake a "green project" at your school or church or in your community.
