Are you excited to learn strategies for science learning in the elementary
classroom? Join three educators sharing three different strategies for
elementary science learners, including project-based learning, place-based
learning, and online assessment materials.
Free Project-Based Learning Resources for Elementary Science
Get a brief introduction to free OER integrated science curricular
units for Grades 3-5 and see how well the features of Project-Based Learning
provide the tools and routines to support sensemaking.
A Home for Fossils: Bringing place-based education to a museum-based
Join education staff from Tellus Science Museum to see
fossils that call Georgia home and discuss how to incorporate place-based
geoscience education with elementary science standards.
Multidimensional Assessment Tasks and a Virtual Learning Community
for Elementary Science Teachers
Learn about two free, complementary
online resources: NGSS-aligned assessment tasks for Grades 3-5 and a website to
support teachers in using the assessment tasks and participating in an online
community of practice.
