No Student Left Indoors Teacher Workshop

9am - 4pm

In conjunction with the Educator's Showcase, the Museum is offering a No Student Left Indoors Teacher Workshop on February 5 from 9 am to 4 pm to train educators to utilize No Student Left Indoors, a curriculum produced by Jane Kirkland.

This curriculum is aligned with the National Science Education Standards for outdoor science and is recommended by the National Science Teachers Association. It focuses on how to create a field guide to the nature in the students’ own schoolyard. The curriculum connects science, language arts, history, creative arts, and technology and specifically encourages students to write about what they find. Current research also suggests that outdoor nature connections are integral to healthy student development and are lacking in our technology driven environments. This approach encourages those interactions through hands-on schoolyard nature explorations and easily fits into existing classroom curriculum.

Advanced registration is required to attend this workshop; and is free to the first 15 registrants. Enroll by calling Maria Lazo at the Museum 979-776-2195.
