Join us for this CTLE and P-Credit course for Preschool through Elementary teachers as we virtually explore the New York Aquarium and get up close and personal with some of the amazing marine animals that live there. Participants will blend science and ELA as we explore both large and small creatures of the sea, their adaptations, habitats, survival needs, and interactions. Additionally, we will discuss the ways humans are impacting these animals and what we can do about it. We will get a virtual sneak peek into the brand new exhibits at the aquarium to discover ways to use these exhibits with students as well as engaging activities to bring back to the classroom. Work collaboratively with peers and create an assessment to be used in your own classroom as you explore how marine animals can help you meet the new NY State learning standards for science and ELA.With the transition to an online format, we will be modeling strategies of remote learning that teachers can use with their students.
This course runs August 4 - August 16
