Educators will participate in learning activities designed by a collaborative of seven national organizations including the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Fish and Wildlife service, the National Parks service, and U.S. Forest Service.
The activities for this workshop use a case study approach to focus on climate change and its impact on wildlife and public lands. All activities are aligned with the Framework for K-12 Science Education. Strong connections to the Iowa Core and Next Generation Science Standards are emphasized.
