Seasons and Cycles in Nature Teacher Workshop Series for Preschool through Grade Five Teachers

March 13, 20, 27 and April 3 (NEW DATES)

Let's have some fun learning about phenology! Phenology is defined as the study of cyclic and seasonal natural phenomena, especially in relation to climate and plant and animal life. Mass Audubon's Joppa Flats Teacher Naturalists will share their knowledge, experience and resources to help you integrate science, language arts, and math into the field of nature education - both in the classroom and in the schoolyard. We can help you become more confident as a teacher of science and nature. You will discover the many ways to bring inquiry learning into your curriculum using living and non-living objects, hands-on science, the dramatic arts, and simple technology. This series draws from our extensive education work with schools from grade preschool through early elementary. Our Joppa Team will show you the many benefits of nature education including better focus, teamwork and attention to detail not to mention a great way to reduce anxiety for both students AND teachers! In addition, participants will take away lesson plans for each activity shared during the workshop for you to access and share with colleagues. Full description can be located at:
