Source to Sea Watershed Education Program
Students often have little connection to the River that flows through their neighborhoods. FoLAR invites 1st through 12th grade teachers to incorporate the LA River into their curriculum.
We are looking to work with a teacher(s) to create engaging learning experiences that also align with standards. The River’s rich history serves as a bridge to cross-curricular learning experiences and to links to standards in English, math, science and more.
Source to Sea educators bring the River Rover to schools to conduct lessons and activities utilizing the custom-built watershed table and the interpretive learning gallery. The experience culminates in an exciting hands-on River field trip (optional).
Teacher Training Opportunities with Project WET Curriculum
FoLAR and Heal the Bay will be offering free teacher-training workshops in preparation for the River Rover learning experience. The trainings will take place on Saturdays. Teachers will be introduced to Project WET curriculum, will practice science investigation skills, and will be given a PWET curriculum and activity book.
