When teaching Climate Change it is easy to feel buried by data. We will discuss exciting new ways that The Wild Center, and others, are communicating climate change and its associated impacts in an engaging cross-disciplinary manner. We will explore climate change and its connections to life in the Northeast through use of The Wild Center’s exhibits including our immersive Science on a Sphere, discuss how climate change fits into current educational standards (including Next Generation Science Standards, English Language Arts, Social Sciences, and Math), and get hands-on with some interactive lessons. Teachers will collaborate with other educators, create lessons that support interdisciplinary education standards and 21st Century skill building, interact with climate scientists, and leave with resources and ideas to use in the classroom.
Workshop sessions may include; Climate Change – 101: What You Really Need to Know; Visualizing Global and Local Data; Climate Change, the Media, and Me; Sustainability and Climate Solutions in Action; and Climate Change and Next Generation Science Standards.
Workshop offered in partnership with FEH BOCES.
Cost: Registration is now open through My Learning Plan in partnership with FEH BOCES.
