The Prairie - Our Heartland: Particles and Prairies

July 22, 2013 3:30PM EDT to July 26, 2013 4:30PM EDT


What was the Midwest like 200 years ago? The Prairie - Our Heartland is both an interdisciplinary ecology program including free field trips to Fermilab for upper elementary students and a professional development workshop for teachers. Tens of thousands of square miles of glorious color, waves of grass, and diverse animal populations inhabited what we now call home. How—and why—has this amazing ecosystem changed? Using observation, experience, inquiry, and critical thinking, convey the story of the prairie and westward expansion to your students. This program incorporates science, language arts, mathematics, social science, and more! Immerse yourself in The Prairie - Our Heartland. Awaken to a whole new world!

This workshop, Particles and Prairies, is $275
