Nature School for Teachers: Schoolyard Habits
Tuesday, July 19 - Friday, July 22 • 9:00 am-3:30 pm
Thursday, November 3 • 4:00-6:00 pm
In-person at Mass Audubon Headquarters
208 South Great Road, Lincoln MA 01773
Nature School for Teachers is an opportunity for K-8 teachers to immerse themselves in science by exploring their local habitat, and meaningfully connect with the science practices embedded in the Massachusetts Science Frameworks.
Participants will practice field science and inquiry-based learning methods through hands-on exploration of local habitats, conducting field research, and designing investigations that they can bring back to their classrooms. Mass Audubon educators and scientists will model effective ways to teach in an outdoor environment, facilitate deep discussions, and offer content-rich presentations and helpful resources to support student learning in nature. Participants will reflect on their experiences by keeping a field journal and, as a final project, will create a field experience and study tools to be used by their students, reporting back on the experience in November.
Registration is open until July 15.
