Hands-on Activities for Understanding Weather and Climate
Looking for some engaging activities that introduce students to weather and climate? Join educators from the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) as they present several hands-on activities designed in collaboration with Boulder’s Open Space and Mountain Parks (OSMP). We will discuss and introduce ways you can show your students how weather and climate relate to better understanding of the Earth as a system. These field-tested activities will be Colorado-based and applicable both in the classroom and outside. Topics include Surviving and thriving with change, climate observations, How do animals adapt in Colorado and a photo scavenger hunt.
This workshop is a part of the Colorado Science Conference for Professional Development, November 16, 2012 at the Denver Merchandise Mart.
