In this hands-on workshop, the presenter will engage participants in interdisciplinary activities that help students explore human impacts on the planet including population growth, threats to biodiversity, and compromised ecosystems. Teachers will participate in activity simulations and discussions for around 80% of the workshop, so be prepared to be up and moving! While engaging students in complex problem solving tasks, the presented activities also stimulate creative thinking and motivate students to consider possibilities for creating sustainable societies. These activities build skills in science, math, and the social sciences, while providing students the chance to apply learning to authentic problems observable in the world around them. Activity formats include graphing and data analysis, modeling, and group problem-solving. Participants receive a standards-aligned curriculum CD-ROM. Intended audience is upper elementary & middle school (4th-8th) science and math teachers.
