Looking for ways to keep your students engaged at the end of the school year? Look no further than your own schoolyard, whether it's a playground, a neighborhood park, or the edge of a parking lot. In this workshop we will explore how to use science process skills to make environmental science local, as well as how to address the Common Core State Standards in environmental investigations. We will be going outside during the workshop, so please dress accordingly. Grades 3-8
