Grades 1-3 | Be4STEM presents Choose the Best Animal Homes in the Zoo - 2/16/18 11:10am EST
About this event:
This presentation highlights science careers in Unit 6 of “Tiny Science for Great Futures”.
Activity 1 examines multiple soils with affordable magnifying boxes, pipettes, magnifiers and petri dishes. Scenarios introduce careers that study how to match animals with their proper soil habitat. Activity 2 presents cards for life cycles of different animals. Scenarios reinforce making choices for the best soil for the animals’ life cycles. Activity 3 poses an interactive problem ~ Explain how you would construct a habitat for your animal in your home zoo. Polling features allow mastery of decision-making techniques at frequent intervals in this session. An open-ended problem posed at the end of the session encourages additional problem solving skill development. Classes are encouraged to share post-lesson solutions with us for additional feedback. Submit follow-up questions, observations, suggestions for scenarios to Diana Palma at firstname.lastname@example.org.
