Flying WILD & Aquatic WILD Workshop (K-5 Teacher Professional Development)

September 30, 2023

Attention elementary school teachers!

Teach WILD. Learn WILD. Be WILD.

Mote Marine Laboratory, Save Our Seabirds and the Tampa Bay Watch Discovery Center are partnering up to offer a two-for-one FREE teacher professional development opportunity. We're combining two amazing resources into one fabulous training.

In this full day workshop led by professional educators, you’ll learn about some of the wonderful resources created by the Association of Fish & Wildlife agencies with dozens of hands-on activities and games you can take back to your classroom to engage your students in educational and experiential activities that increase environmental literacy, appreciation, and stewardship.

  • Flying WILD: Through activities involving language arts, social science and math experiences, coupled with community outreach and service learning applications, Flying WILD offers a whole-school approach to environmental education using birds as the focus. Targeted for the middle-school audience, though widely adaptable, Flying WILD offers practical hands-on classroom and outdoor field investigation experiences connecting real-world experiences in bird biology, conservation, and natural history.
  • Aquatic WILD: Water in all its forms is one of the most dramatic of today's arenas in which informed, responsible, and constructive actions are needed. Aquatic WILD uses the simple, successful format of Project WILD activities and professional training workshops but with an emphasis on aquatic wildlife and aquatic ecology.

This workshop is open to public and private school educators teaching grades K-5.
