This one day workshop focuses on using the Gottesman Hall of Planet Earth to explore the the formation of landforms that result from plate tectonics and investigate how Earth’s systems and life on Earth co-evolved to create an oxygen-rich atmosphere.Teachers will experience pre, during and post field trip activities that embed science content in Common Core aligned reading and writing tasks. Discussions with colleagues will provide an opportunity for teachers to differentiate lessons for their students.

Participants will receive copies of the Educator’s Guide as well as a set of digital and print resources.
