The Conservancy has now begun offering the Virtual Field Trips featured in the December 2020 e-newsletter. The Education Team kicked off the first Synchronous Session (live!) field trip on Thursday, January 28th with the help of our animal ambassadors and Education Staff pictured above. 29 students were able to experience an Animal Encounter, one of three different field trip options, from the safety of their homes. Each unit has two lessons consisting of short videos for students to watch, followed by a simple activity for them to complete in order to cement and deepen learning.
This program has been designed to support Next Generation Science Standards, Common Core, and Executive Function Skill development, while being offered in both English and Spanish. We plan to have more languages offered soon. To find out more, click below!
