In partnership with the US Army Corps of Engineers, LL&W hosts FREE one-day workshops for educators (both traditional and non-traditional) on the Corps’ new curriculum and activities guide, Our Mississippi. This curriculum is awesome and aligned with each state on the Mississippi’s educational standards to make it as easy for teachers as possible. In addition to curriculum training, LL&W spends some time in the field with each group showing them firsthand different facets of the river via our workboats.
Be sure to check out lesson 2.5 featuring our own Chad Pregracke! And while the curriculum is called Our Mississippi, much of the content pertains to the entire watershed encompassing the Illinois and Ohio Rivers as well!
