CEED’s Nature of Science Program Explores Our Watery World
Our new Nature of Science program has been a blast! We have more than 20 kids in grades 1-6 enrolled. During the first two sessions they’ve been outdoors, mucking around in the water, reading salinity levels in the creek, catching critters, and learning all about our Long Island watery world.
Nature of Science is designed for children who need something more than online classes and for homeschooled students. It’s inquiry-based learning aligned with New York standards for science, English, language arts, mathematics, and sometimes social studies. Teachers Franny and Julia have had the best time with kids. Here’s what one parent said:
“Dear CEED, Thank you for getting our kids enrolled and involved! This was their first group class in months, and it was a hit! I heard all about the adventures with shrimp, frogs, and turtle—our kids are looking forward to next week!”
Enrollment for Session 2, Food, Farm & Harvest, which starts on Nov. 4, has already begun. Your students will discover where food comes from and how it gets to your table. Click here to register.
