Kids love (& LEARN from) hands-on science & math lessons. You will be amazed by the skills your students gain when you teach these units. During this workshop you will try the materials, activities and lessons plans associated with the standards you teach. Through active involvement we will practice using GEMS kits to meet the science standards, materials & small group management, questioning techniques, linking reading & writing with math & science, and inquiry-based learning.
Those taking the workshop for credit must teach a GEM's lesson by Sept. 30, 2018 and participate in a review of the experience. Times will be arranged at the convenience of the participants. Each participant will earn a free GEMS guide of their choice and a teacher membership to the SD Discovery Center. Bring a laptop, if you have one.
This workshop is sponsored by the SD Space Grant Consortium.
