Thompson T.E.N., a two- to three-day outdoor environmental education workshop, incorporates Project WILD
, Project Wet
, and Project Learning Tree
into a unique school d istrict-specific curriculum for Thompson third-, fourth-, sixth-, and seventh- grade teachers. It is tailored to district education needs, standards, and existing curricula, and all workshop activities are correlated to specific state standards.
As with all other T.E.N. programs, Thompson T.E.N. helps teachers develop environmental science education skills and techniques in an outdoor setting. A difference is that Thompson T.E.N. is offered at grade-specific sites. Third grade curriculum is given at Morey Nature Preserve through a partnership with the City of Loveland; fourth grade at Devil's Backbone, partnered with Larimer County Open Lands; sixth grade workshops are held at Rocky Mountain National Park with the Park as partner; and the seventh grade program is hosted at Boyd Lake State Park. Colorado State Parks is the partner.
