4th Grade Students Earn Award for Work to Protect Watershed
Students in our 4th grade received the Schuylkill Drinking Water Award from the Schuylkill Action Network as part of their yearlong efforts to protect the local watershed. Their project included learning about the waterways in our region, raising trout in the classroom, and marking storm drains in the neighborhood to help raise awareness about waterways in our area.

TEACHERS AS STUDENTS: THE EIC MODEL IN ACTION!
Green Woods teaching staff is always learning. One way we prepared for the new school year was by stepping outside the classroom walls and into the great outdoors. In 2014, our school was designated as a National Model for teaching the EIC Program. EIC stands for using the Environment as an Integrating Context and, for more than a decade, the Green Woods teachers have been developing our own EIC curriculum, building supportive partnerships, and honing our skills to bring rich, cross-curricular learning experiences to our K-8 students.
The students sailed the Atlantic, spotted a pod of dolphins, tossed and retrieved fishing nets, and then worked alongside experts to identify the diversity of creatures living in the Atlantic Ocean ecosystem. Come aboard! See for yourself how Green Woods 4th graders have “done it all this year! Watch the video!
