Bring science processes and SEL alive using wonder
and the natural world. Free online resources help in-person or virtual teachers
access nature with students.
Note: If you are able to watch this short video "Pocket Worlds" BEFORE the
session, it will be beneficial to you.
Participants will: 1. learn how to access and use a suite of free web-based resources designed to promote discovery learning in nature; 2. experience the lesson individually and discuss it with colleagues to make meaning and increase relevance for both teachers and their students; and 3. share and discuss applications for using these tools for discovery learning in their own setting.
