One-Week Institute for Grades 3-8 Educators
Landscapes for Learning: A Natural Confluence of Science, Literacy, Mathematics and Place-based Pedagogy
Description: Communities and their landscapes — whether forests, farms, or streetscapes — provide context for the study of ecology, history, culture, and society. Collect data from local rivers and ponds, explore landscapes that have inspired a confluence of science and ideas for centuries, and learn effective strategies for using nature journals, science notebooks and other literacy tools in your classroom. Bridge your school and community by designing inquiry-based learning that connects students in meaningful ways to their local environment.
Partners: Mass Audubon’s Drumlin Farm Wildlife Sanctuary, Walden Woods Project, Concord Museum
