Let's Take It Outside! Science and Social Studies in Your Schoolyard Cont.

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Whether you're teaching science or social studies, it's more fun and meaningful to do this outside where students will naturally be happier and more engaged.  In this session we'll show you how your schoolyard is an ideal environment for deepening your students' understanding of key concepts within the K-12 science curriculum such as the diversity of living things, connectedness, systems, seasons, the water cycle, temperature, and more. Similarly, there's no better place to deliver the social studies curriculum as you help students understand the world around them and their place within it. You'll leave with many activities, ideas and resources you can use right away.
