This introductory workshop will present principles, activities and techniques to integrate forestry education into the K-12 classroom. The workshop will demonstrate how to teach students about the importance of Wisconsin’s forests to our ecological, economic, and social well-being. The training is designed for the K-12 classroom teacher pursuing the skills and methodologies needed to teach their students using forestry in both indoor and outdoor classrooms. Participants will receive a CD-ROM of LEAF’s K-12 Forestry Lesson Guide, which contains engaging standards-based, grade-specific lessons appropriate for integration into science, social studies, agriculture, mathematics, technology education, ELA, and general elementary curricula.

Workshop Objectives

  • Participants will gain basic understanding of the ecosystem functions, values, management, and issues of Wisconsin forests.
  • Participants will become familiar with materials in the LEAF Lesson Guide and learn how those materials can be used in their own classroom.
  • Participants will be able to identify forest-based opportunities for integrating 21 st century skills into their existing curriculum.


CESA 6 makes every effort to accommodate basic dietary needs such as vegetarian, gluten free and basic food allergies. Because of the number of meals served and the number of items used each day, along with food product changes from our food vendors, we cannot guarantee that every allergen in the food served will be identified and labeled. Guests concerned with food allergies must be aware of this risk. CESA 6 does not assume liability for adverse reactions to food consumed or items one may come into contact with while eating at a CESA 6 event. To better serve our guests with dietary restrictions or allergies, please go into your myQuickReg account and update the special accommodations section. Notice of a special dietary need must be made in advance of the event.
