Join us for an engaging in-person workshop where we’ll explore the three types of productive resources: capital, human, and natural. We’ll focus specifically on natural resources, such as greenery and tree farms, and how they can be utilized to enhance the learning experience for your students. To make the experience even more enjoyable, we’ll have a wreath making activity where you can put your newly acquired knowledge into practice by creating your own wreath. Plus, enjoy a warm cup of hot cocoa as we share ideas and insights on how to optimize your classroom resources. Don’t miss this opportunity to network with other educators and take your classroom to the next level.
