Discovering Biodiversity in the National Parks
There are many ways to find your park, and many places you can find it. We encourage San Diego educators to start their journey at Cabrillo National Monument, where you’ll find a park rich in natural and cultural resources and opportunities to explore. This presentation will delve into the many new and upcoming opportunities to get classrooms out into nature and discovering the biodiversity that surrounds them.

Let Them Do Science: Citizen Science in the Classroom
Kids love asking questions, and doing authentic, hands-on projects.
There are plenty of opportunities to get your class engaged in real
scientific exploration, whether it is space, bugs, or birds. Thanks to
electronic devices and apps, contributing to scientific projects is easier
than ever. Instead of science being presented as a set of learned facts,
participatory activities like citizen science teach kids critical thinking
and inquiry so they learn how to “think like a scientist” – an important
21 st century skill. Learn more about implementing citizen science in
your classroom and about local resources available to help you do it.

Schoolyards, Science and a Sense of Adventure
Step outside the classroom and discover nature in the schoolyard.
Explore botany, entomology, ornithology and meteorology through hands-on
outdoor activities and a sense of adventure. Learn about schoolyard, nature-
based projects that integrate writing, reading, math and the arts and invite
students to explore trees, bugs, birds and rain puddles in their everyday lives.
Participants will receive a list of picture books, poetry, plays and songs,
categorized by science strands, to use as an inspiration for learning about
nature.
