Hands-on Citizen Science for the Classroom - Sioux Falls
8/10/2021 - 8/11/2021
8:30 AM - 4:00 PM

Event Description
Get equipped (literally!) to integrate hands-on citizen science learning into your classroom. In this two day workshop we will learn about and practice using GLOBE and iNaturalist protocols for teaching and learning the sun's energy, biodiversity, seasons, weather and climate and the carbon cycle. We will connect these topics using an Earth systems/climate framework so you can see how what you teach fits into the Big Picture.

This opportunity is designed for teams of teachers from the same school but it's ok if you are flying solo.

Participants will receive: 
  • A classroom set of materials suitable for selected protocol.
  • Two graduate workshop credits (extra fee) or 15 contact hours.
  • Google classroom template with lessons that you can copy and modify for your students
This is an active and participatory workshop.  Come dressed for the outdoors. Suitable for grades 4-12. 
Due to funding constraints, this workshop is for teachers in South Dakota public or state accredited private schools only.

This opportunity is brought to you by the SD Department of Education.
