What in the World? Engaging Kids in Outdoor Learning Connected to TEKS
October 11, 2023 2pm
Partner Webinar with Kiki Corry with Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and Liz Baker and Carla Bailey with Texas Education Agency
Nothing compares to a child’s wonder as they discover something new. They are natural born scientists asking questions, observing with ALL the senses, and looking for patterns to make sense of the world. They don’t know that they are investigating phenomena, exhibiting scientific and engineering practices and applying recurring themes – the exact skills that will be required of them in the classroom. Join Texas Education Agency staff in discussing how children’s experience in nature can support the newly adopted science teaching standards. Learn the ways teachers describe the knowledge and skills addressed in the classroom. See how a minor adjustment in our approach can boost children’s experience to lay the foundations for classroom success.
Webinar is offered at 2:00 (central) on October 11
