Are you an elementary school teacher seeking out some great new NGSS activities? Don’t worry! The ENC has you covered with “Teachers Night Out!” Third through sixth grade teachers are invited to enjoy mini-workshops throughout the Nature Center and learn hands-on activities to teach Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) concepts in their own classrooms.
Our Community Outreach Director, Sama Wareh, will demonstrate how teachers can connect Common Core Standards and the Next Generation Science Standards to the arts. She’ll teach a hands-on “magnet art” project students will love!
Teachers will also engage in a hands-on activity using the scientific method to learn about aquatic ecosystems and interactions between abiotic and biotic factors along the trails of the
After a couple hours of learning new activities, teachers will get to relax with food and wine around a warm campfire surrounded by the ENC’s beautiful trees. Wine is being generously donated by PRP Wines, who will also have a representative here to describe the wines being poured.
All those who join us for this educational night will be entered to win a teacher professional development program for their school, receive priority booking for 2017-2018 school programs.
Register now or by March 23 HERE and see what the ENC can teach you!
