Description:

Teachers and informal educators, please join Minnesota and Wisconsin Sea Grant for a two-part workshop series (April 7, 2021 and April 14, 2021) that explores ways to use iNaturalist to enhance your curriculum across a variety of subjects.

During the two sessions, you will learn how to use iNaturalist to integrate nature observation into art, cultural appreciation, geography, math, writing, biology, and more. Also learn about how you can use the Great Lakes BioBlitz to increase Great Lakes literacy in your learners.

Each session will feature a guest speaker to help show these concepts in action, hands-on activities, suggestions for classroom applications, and a chance to share and network with other education professionals. Workshop materials will address relevant Minnesota academic standards and benchmarks, Wisconsin model academic standards, Common Core Standards and Next Generation Science Standards.
