Living Classroom Winter Volunteer Training!

 

Mountain View Whisman School District’s Living Classroom program inspires our students to value the natural world through garden-based education. We provide Kindergarten through 5th grade classrooms (in all 8 Mountain View Whisman elementary schools) with hour-long lessons that correlate with current science, math, and social studies standards. Living Classroom uses a hands-on, inquiry approach to learning which ensures our lessons are effective AND fun!

 

Last year we reached thousands of students and taught over 550 lessons with the help of our volunteers. Volunteering with Living Classroom is rewarding, enjoyable, and no prior teaching or gardening experience is required. Interested in sharing your love of nature with students? We would love to have you on board! Consider attending our upcoming winter training sessions:
