Updated Leopold Education Project Curriculum (Coming November 2016)
We’re pleased to announce the release of an updated Leopold Education Project Curriculum! Available in November 2016, this new resource is a consolidation of the best lessons from the wide array of resources developed through LEP over the years, and includes content adapted from Lessons in a Land Ethic (1994), Exploring the Outdoors with Aldo Leopold (2009), and the Habitat Discovery Series (2014). The consolidation project aimed to combine similar lessons located within the various LEP resources, ensure that lessons are easy to implement in all environments, and strengthen ties to A Sand County Almanac, Aldo Leopold, and his style of teaching and learning.
Designed for use by formal and non-formal educators, the twenty lessons in the updated spiral bound print curriculum are designed to help students understand human connections to the natural world through hands-on, inquiry-based outdoor experiences. The 84 page curriculum builds skills in observation, plant and animal identification, land stewardship, natural history, writing and reflection, and environmental values. Read more about the updated curriculum and stay tuned for its release!
Supplement your Leopold Education Project curriculum with a set of Leopold Exploration Cards—28 cards to help educators connect people of all ages with the natural world. Each card features a short quote from A Sand County Almanac, paired with a simple activity prompt connected to the quote. These cards are a great complement to any Leopold Education Project lesson, and are also a great tool to infuse any program with inquiry-based outdoor observation! Order in our bookstore.
