Growing up WILD Workshop

Saturday December 16
9:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Join Tennessee Aquarium Educators for an engaging workshop designed to bring nature to children ages 3 to 7. This interactive training is open to teachers, parents, informal educators, daycare providers and nature lovers who are looking for ways to weave the natural world into the daily lives of the young children around them in a more effective and inspiring manner!

Growing Up WILD is an interdisciplinary early childhood education guide that invites children to explore the world around them through hands-on, interactive activities and lessons. Each participant will receive a copy of the guide as well as examples and best practices on how to facilitate the activities for your own children, in a classroom or in a group setting. Capacity for this workshop is 30 participants.
