REGISTER

 $50, includes lunch

Kinesthetic learning has been documented as a research based methodology that benefits all students. When students move, they implement their brain-body connection which makes learning “stickier”. And movement provides opportunities to effectively learn scientific processes and concepts in an engaging and active way. The full day workshop will provide cross-curricular activities directly tied to The Next Generation Science Standards as well as the NJ Language Arts and Physical Education Standards. Teachers will be guided through lessons they can implement immediately and will also be coached on how to create their own cross-curricular lesson plans and assessments to be used in classrooms, open space or outside. The program will feature strong connections to our natural world and the relationship between overall health and outdoor activity.
