Bakeries! Parks! Supermarkets! Science and engineering
practices are everywhere. Come learn about a fun community walk activity that
connects classrooms and communities.
Participants will learn: 1. about the importance of exploring science and engineering practices outside the classroom; 2. how to develop students' observation and data collection skills using the Community Walk; and 3. how investigating the scientific and engineering resources of the community, and engaging families and communities in science learning, inform students' and teachers' visions for teaching and learning science
