Field Trip Packs for Loan to Early Childhood Educators

The Illinois Department of Natural Resources’ (IDNR) Division of Education has developed a new educator resource, and it’s arriving just in time for the 2011-2012 school year. Field Trip Packs for loan to early childhood educators (grades prekindergarten through three) will be available within two weeks from lending locations throughout Illinois.

Each pack is a backpack that contains hands-on equipment to encourage young children to engage in nature exploration. Suggestions for educators on how to incorporate natural-resources related topics into the curriculum are also included. To see the list of lending locations and the pack content list, visit http://dnr.state.il.us/education/fieldtrippack.htm.
