Ocean Literacy Through the Eyes of an Albatross

 
Professional Development Workshop for grade 6-12 Educators

What?
Winged Ambassadors is a five lesson activity package that helps students to learn about seabirds, the ocean, and marine and land debris. Albatrosses traverse vast oceanic regions searching for floating food, and often ingest plastic trash and feed it to their chicks. The five activities in this unit are inquiry-based science instruction and are aligned to standards for grades 6-8, with extensions for grades 9-12.

Each lesson includes a lesson plan with suggested discussion questions, ideas for differentiation, extensions, suggestions for videos and Internet links. Also included are student worksheets and handouts and other materials for the teacher.

Who?
This workshop will be useful to classroom teachers and others who work with children.

Where?
P.R.B.O./Conservation Science: 3820 Cypress Drive, Petaluma

When?
Wednesday, October 24, 2012, 4:00 – 7:00 p.m.
