Earthwatch: Teacher Fellowship - Teach Earth, United Kingdom

Let nature be your classroom. Teach Earth is a fully-funded programme combining “hands-on” scientific research which can be replicated in a school setting and innovative tailored learning sessions for teachers.

Charlene Duncan, Teach Earth 2014 participant and primary school teacher in London, describes her experiences.

"I loved being able to benefit from the expertise and enthusiasm of others. It helped to renew my own enthusiasm for outdoor education and I came away with lots of ideas to try in the classroom.

"As Maths co-ordinator I am planning a week with the theme of Maths in Nature for our whole school. I learned that Education for Sustainable Development does not have to be complicated; it all starts by getting children to engage with nature.

"Being able to leave everyday pressure of teaching begin to be reflective about my own practices was invaluable."
