Speed Sharing: Middle School

McCormick Place - W185d

1) Quanti-FLY: Exploring Quantitative Biology in Middle School
Put on “student hat” and engage in an anchoring phenomenon and make a driving question board while sensemaking with the SEPs.

2) Making sense of our niche in Our Common Home
Approaching environmental science in middle school as an opportunity for current students to grow in resilience and meaning has led to several lessons on specific ecosystems, but in the context of our human place within our solar system.
