In this CTLE workshop for elementary teachers, we will explore the connections between elementary standards and wildlife at the Bronx Zoo. Through literacy activities, hands-on engagement, exhibit visits, peer reflection, and curriculum planning time, participants will be able to apply their knowledge of animal diversity and adaptations to enrich their students’ understanding of life science. Additionally, participating teachers will be supported as they design a learning experience to help their students make observations of the natural world.

Location: Bronx Zoo

Date & Time: Thursday, June 7 from 8:30am-3:00pm

Registration is now closed.
