Teacher Workshops: 10 Plants that Changed Minnesota

Can you guess the 10 Plants that changed Minnesota? Learn these plants along with fun and educational STEM activities designed for middle and high school students, but easily adapted to younger students. Activities range from measuring the value of a tree, the parts of a corn plant, comparing wild rice populations in Minnesota lakes, how plant breeders produce new apples, and the nutritional value of soybeans. All activities meet Minnesota graduation standards.

Plan now to attend free workshops breakfast and lunch provided, 6 hours of continuing education, PLUS all science teachers receive the new 10 Plants That Changed Minnesota book; all participants will receive the 70-page 10 Plants Teachers Activities Handbook and everyone will learn many fun activities.

Who should attend? Anyone who teaches kids….and wants to learn more about plants in Minnesota! 4-H Leaders, Master Gardeners, as well as classroom teachers or home- school teachers.

Register for a free workshop near you: From April 21-November 16, 2017 across the state; there are 12 workshops in the coming year. For more information contact University of Minnesota professor Dr. Mary Meyer, meyer023@umn.edu.
