Laura Wood, Environmental Connections Integration Specialist, Lincoln Heights Environmental Connections Magnet Elementary School

Lincoln Heights Elementary School is one of two magnet schools in North Carolina to offer the Environmental Connections program, where all subjects are taught through an environmental lens. Join Laura Wood to learn about the origin of the school’s theme, its implementation and the many ways students are connecting with the environment. She will share practices and strategies you can replicate, and tips and tricks to take students beyond the four walls of a traditional classroom to be immersed in nature. Come and learn how to connect with the environment all year long!
