Nature of Science: A Series for Kids
Are you looking for science and nature classes that will provide hands-on experiences to help your child succeed this school year? CEED is launching an innovative program for your child called the Nature of Science, where your child will be immersed in a unique inquiry-based learning environment. Each five-week session will be aligned with the foundations required for your child to learn science, English, language arts, mathematics, and sometimes social studies. Developed and taught by two experienced educators, with curriculum developed under the guidance of scientists and experts in the field of education, Nature of Science will provide your child with an exceptional educational experience.
Your child will learn through authentic scientific projects and activities with our esteemed educators Fanny Kleisler and Julia Todorov. Fanny and Julia will take your child on an interactive journey to explore and discover….
- the natural world up close
- how animals, plants, and humans interact within different ecosystems.
- life cycles and life’s processes
- different ways to appreciate and conserve our precious resources and thriving ecosystems, and more!
With the opportunity to think like a scientist, investigate and appreciate nature, learn what it takes to be a good steward for the environment and give back to nature through conservation projects, your child will be better prepared to understand our fragile planet.
CEED has two five-week sections available, one for Grades 1-3 on Wednesdays from 10:30-12:30 and a second for Grades 4-6 on Wednesdays from 1:30-3:30.
Session 1 for both sections begins on Wednesday, September 23, 2020.
Some of the workshops will be at CEED’s Washington Lodge location, while others may be onsite at the bay or local stream. Group size is limited to 15 children, so we anticipate these sections will fill quickly. We will maintain a waiting list and might add sections if there is sufficient interest.
