Introduction to Next Generation Science in the Garden (Grades K-5)
Let's head outside and put earth and life back into Earth and Life Science! Using lessons from Life Lab’s The Growing Classroom activity guide, participants in this workshop learn to use a garden as a meaningful context in which their students can engage in Next Generation Science and Engineering Practices to examine Disciplinary Core Ideas and Cross-Cutting Concepts. Where better to explore ecological interdependence, growth and development of organisms, structure and function, adaptation, and the environmental impact of human activity than in an outdoor garden classroom? Graduate education units available.
Anyone interested in teaching K-5 science in a garden.

"I am a scientist and have a Ph.D in molecular/microbiology, but I am a mom first. When I came to my son's 2nd grade class and found that the 'science' kids were doing consisted of making dinosaur dioramas, I knew the school needed to do more. I wanted elementary school students to be exposed to true, hands-on science. I chose Life Lab to fill the void because the science was sound. The Life Lab program provides true experiments for students and inspires in them a love of science."
