This is not a UMass Amherst program
 Contact information is below.
 ==============================================       
 
 Massachusetts State Parks hosts a training for Early Childhood
 Educators at Brookwood Community Farm in Canton, MA, on Saturday, March
 21, from 10:00 a.m.  - 1:00 p.m.
  
 The workshop showcases Project Learning Tree's Early Childhood
 curriculum, specifically written for ages 3-6.  It engages youngsters
 in the natural world with hands-on experiences that build on what's
 already familiar and comfortable to them.
 
  
 The guide is organized around the senses, the seasons, and neighborhood
 trees.  Thematic units follow typical preK-K routines and are flexible
 for teachers.  They pique curiosity, build vocabulary and include both
 self-directed and teacher-guided activities.
 
 Try out activities and discuss how they apply to your situation. 
 Participants enjoy the workshop's small group size and collegial
 atmosphere.
 
 The $15 fee includes the Early Childhood Curriculum Guide, music C.D.,
 and supporting materials.  It is only available by attending a
 training. For more information or to pre-register by March 18, please
 contact Gini.Traub@state.ma.us, 413/584-6788.
 
 Please share this email with anyone who might be interested.
