Engage in minds-on, hands-on learning which will provide you with science knowledge, classroom investigations aligned to the standards, books for your classroom and other resources. Let us help you make time for science by showing you how to integrate science with talking, reading, and writing and integrate literacy time with science. We will read, write, talk and most importantly “do science.”
Discover the amazing world of squirrels as we engage in phenomena-based science instruction exploring animal behavior, like the physical and behavioral adaptations that make squirrels part gymnast, part economist, part bandit, and completely irresistible.
In this institute we will focus on squirrels as we study animal behaviors, and adaptations because squirrels are an easily observed animal, but the tools and strategies offered are applicable to all animals!
