During this workshop for K-5 educators, teachers will engage in pre-, during, and post-visit activities to learn how to prepare students for a Museum learning experience related to whale biology and conservation. Participants will explore essential questions, look at some of the research on how students learn about these concepts, and work with Educator’s Guide activities for the grade level they teach. Conversations with colleagues will help teachers work on differentiating lessons for their students. Teachers will receive copies of a new Educator’s Guide as well as digital and print resources for teaching whale biology and conservation. This workshop addresses Common Core state standards in English Language Arts for non-fiction reading.
This workshop is for K-5th grade teachers.
