You will have the opportunity to observe and handle live specimens as you explore citizen science projects. You will participate in activities that you can utilize in your classroom or with your youth group.  Choose one of the grade-level specific curriculum guides* and receive two field guides, a laminated set of life cycle cards and numerous other resources. Lunch is also included.

*The Monarchs and More: An Inquiry and Arthropod-Based Curriculum is basis for the monarch butterfly studies and schoolyard ecology explorations included in the workshop. Curricula are divided into grade-level specific lessons for K-2, 3-6, and Middle School teachers with a strong interdisciplinary approach incorporating concepts and skills in science, math, reading, writing, art and social studies.
