On March 5, schools are invited to CONNECTING LEARNING AND LIVING (CLL). The purpose of the content is to connect student learning to living on planet Earth.

Each curricula contains up-to-date research based content matter that aligns with the essential concepts and skill sets of the Iowa Core. Training helps educators and participants become familiar with using the lessons and evaluating student outcomes. Focus is on hands-on learning activities related to gardening, Iowa and its land, history, and natural resources that can be used in a variety of settings.
