This professional development covers a mix of topics including weather and natural disasters. Through engaging demonstrations and hands-on experiments about weather using simple items like plastic bottles, Ziploc baggies, ice, and a rock, teachers will gain fresh ideas about teaching temperature, wind, rain, the water cycle, evaporation, and much more. Helping children understand the importance of first responders during a mock earthquake role play makes a lasting impression. Children love the water cycle in a baggie experiment and they watch with wonder as their teacher makes a cloud in a jar! Teachers will learn how to address the unpredictable forces of nature in gentle, captivating ways in this hands-on session.
