Event description

Description

Explore Oregon’s Rocky Shores

Learn about the unique species that call our rocky shores home and their adaptations for surviving in their ever-changing habitat! During this interactive workshop you will gain an understanding and appreciation for these amazing coastal creatures, and practice strategies for teaching about them. After gaining knowledge through hands-on activities in our Classroom and Galleries, we’ll head to the beach to apply our learning in nature. Throughout the workshop we will share lesson plans, activity demonstrations, and field trip management techniques you can use to implement learning as soon as you return to your classroom. We will also describe how the content and practices of this workshop directly support the Next Generation Science Standards.

Participants will:

  • Learn about the biology, ecology, current issues, and human dimensions of tidepool ecosystems

  • Explore local field sites with scientific experts

  • Practice student activities with facilitation techniques modeled by education experts

  • Collaborate and share ideas with colleagues

  • Receive our Teacher’s Guide to Exploring Oregon’s Rocky Shores, including step-by-step instructions and resources for facilitating classroom activities, field investigations, and a visit to the Aquarium

  • Receive ongoing support for implementation back in the classroom

PLEASE NOTE: While targeted for teachers of Grades 3-5, workshop materials could be adapted for older or younger students as well.

This workshop is FREE for licensed Oregon teachers! Please use your school email address at check-out.
