SWIFTLETS

Environmental Education 'SWIFTLETS'

In an effort to get educational materials and activity ideas to teachers and parents (who may be finding themselves in a new and different kind of teacher role), our Environmental Education Team have created 'SWIFTLETS'. These mini SWIFT's were sent out weekly, March- May, and will continue to be sent out monthly for the remainder of the summer to our educator e-newsletters contact list, and encouraged to be shared with parents. The SWIFTLETS include soil/water information and learning activities related to a weekly theme that parents can immediately utilize at home. Activities are aligned with Ohio’s New Learning Standards for Earth and Space Sciences and Life Sciences.
