Join us in this workshop to explore ways to integrate arthropods into your teaching across multiple subject areas, and delve deeper into all the ways humans and arthropods are connected. Together, we will discuss ways to engage with these animals with curiosity and awareness at outdoor school and in the classroom before/after outdoor school. Lunch will be provided.
