I started volunteering with EV at the end of February. It's a very rewarding experience. Our goal is to teach children about the environment. The teacher chooses which learning stations she wants to have taught. These stations supplement the science education she is teaching her children. I taught owl pellets on Monday. The children loved taking apart the pellets to find out what the owl had eaten. They were amazed at the owl facts. It was wonderful watching their facial expressions. The teacher told us that the class had behavior problems. She was amazed at how engaged they were with all the stations. I've only worked with a couple of kits. I had a hard time keeping the kindergarten kids engaged with the types of feathers kit. I did the bag of junk kit twice and added live things to it the second time. Those were the best items to teach with.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
dedicated and very happy to be participating in the work of teaching children about the environment.
