What workshops are offered?
These are a series of three bird watching educational workshops grounded in science and discovery. These four hour educational workshops are timed for maximum bird observation, science instruction and fun. Given throughout the school year, the first workshop is in the fall, second in winter and the third in spring. Each workshop will include an indoor and outdoor component.
What ages work best?
There are two different age appropriate workshops, fledgling and sub-adult. Student ages 5-13 will be in the fledgling group and ages 11-18 in the sub-adult group. You will find that I can instruct, motivate and inspire with a variety of ages within the same group.
What is the educational value?
A variety of science standards from the CDE required list are covered throughout these educational workshops. Please see below for more details. As any teacher will attest, learners pay more attention to someone new. With over twenty years of teaching experience at both fledgling and sub-adult levels, I know how to keep them engaged and inspired.
Fledgling Workshop Level
- Life Science – up to 9 different depending on the age/grade
- Earth Systems Science – up to 4 standards depending on the age/grade
Sub-adult Workshop Level
- Life Science – 4 different standards
- Earth Systems Science – 4 different standards
I can come to you. Let’s find a friendly public space with a great outdoor area. You might need to transport your students a short distance depending on your home/school location.
