Session Description: Wondering how to get your students thinking about gardening while the snow is still deep on the ground? There are activities you can do with seeds and the school garden year round! Join us for a demonstration of “seedy” activities that bring the garden indoors in preparation for the spring. Activities can be adapted to multiple age groups and different abilities, remote learning, and are aligned with NGSS and North American Association of Environmental Educators standards.

The Lake Superior Stewardship Initiative (LSSI) will present a biweekly Professional Learning Series this school year for K-12 Teachers and community members in the western U.P. to enhance Great Lakes stewardship, facilitate outdoor learning, deepen understanding through place- and project- based learning opportunities and foster a community of learners.

This is a joint project between the Lake Superior Stewardship Initiative which is a collaboration of the Western UP MiSTEM Network, MTU’s Center for Science & Environmental Outreach, and regional partners to connect schools and communities in the stewardship of Lake Superior and its Watershed.
