Students in grades 5-7 from participating schools engage in a sustained exploration of the geo-sciences as they explore the relevance and impact that geology has on their lives and on the world around them. Through this focused, interdisciplinary, Interdistrict Grant-funded program, students improve their academic skills, while developing a better understanding of diversity and making new friends with peers from different districts.
Benefits: Students learn how to create and use science notebooks to include notes, sketches, charts, graphs, questions and answers, hypotheses and changes in conceptual understandings over time, based on real-world investigations. Students also improve their academic skills, while working with peers from different school systems and increasing their understanding and appreciation for diversity.
