Uncover the Mystery: Animal Tracking for the Elementary Classroom

The central purpose of scientific inquiry is to develop explanations of natural phenomena in a continuing, creative process. What if you could learn more about the natural world by being animal detectives? Come to the Queens Zoo to join us in animal tracking! Animals always have a story to tell, even when not directly observable. Learn ways to engage your elementary students in critical thinking and scientific inquiry methods by analyzing animal evidence. Using these various forms of evidence as models, teachers will have the opportunity to engage in hands-on activities and learn pedagogical strategies for their elementary classrooms to enhance student learning.

Location: Queens Zoo

Date & Time: Tuesday, November 7 from 8:30am-3:30pm

Price: $50/participant (lunch included)
