Pittsboro, NC - Chatham County K-12 school teachers will have the opportunity on November 4th and 5th to meet environmental education resources and learn what those organizations have to offer students and teachers.

The "Meet & Greet" sessions are being sponsored by the Chatham Conservation Partnership (CCP) and will be held on November 4th at the Pittsboro Elementary school cafeteria and on November 5th at the Virginia Cross Elementary school cafeteria. Both sessions are after school from 3:15 to 5:00 PM.

Teachers from all K-12 subject areas are invited to attend either date. CCP wants all teachers to know environmental education is not just limited to science classes. Environmental education can be incorporated into English & Language Arts, Arts Education, Healthful Living & PE, Mathematics, Social Studies, Cultural/Global Awareness, Instructional Technology, as well as Science curriculum activities. Organizations offer classroom speakers, field trip opportunities, and other resources such as teacher workshops and lesson plans. The informal "meet & greet" setting allows teachers to circulate and visit displays staffed with representatives who can talk with them about environmental education resources available to them.
