August 1–4, 2016
Become immersed in local habitats, (re)excited about science, and familiar with science practices embedded in Massachusetts’ new science standards. The week will combine habitat exploration, hands-on fieldwork, labs and classroom seminars taught by Mass Audubon educators and scientists. The course will introduce principles of ecology (ecosystems, habitats, adaptation, food webs, cycles and systems, energy flow), and highlight their connections to the earth, life, and physical science standards. Presenters will suggest methods and resources for helping students learn and practice science through the exploration of their schoolyards and neighborhoods, and will model practical ways to teach in an outdoor environment.

Instructors:
Jennifer Feller, Education Manager, Drumlin Farm Wildlife Sanctuary
Robin Stuart, School and Group Program Coordinator, Drumlin Farm Wildlife Sanctuary
Tia Pinney, Senior Teacher Naturalist, Drumlin Farm Wildlife Sanctuary
