Is It Spring Yet? Searching for Signs of the New Season

Nancy Sableski, Manager of Children’s Education and Ana Maria Caballero, Science Educator, Arnold Arboretum
March 5, 9:00-11:00 am
Location: Hunnewell Building and grounds


There is a sleeping world outdoors ready to be discovered, observed, and enjoyed by all. This month we will search the landscape for early signs of spring, and discuss ways to create similar experiences for your students in school outdoor classrooms, playgrounds, and surrounding green spaces. Such explorations naturally raise many questions in children’s minds.   Once indoors, participants will engage in identifying testable questions that can be used in setting up science experiments. A brief look at the NGSS Practices of Science will help frame our work.

Free and open to the public. Call 617-384-5239 for more information.
