Small Creatures, Big Ideas: Using Insects to Address Next Generation Science Standards
Saturday, April 6, 2013
10:00am - 12:00pm
Use insects and spiders to address the new Next Generation Science Standards! Come explore the research—and behind-the-scenes collection areas—with Collections Assistant Jim Louderman, “the man who mistook his tarantula for a hat.” Then work with a Field Museum educator to learn how to share the wonder of “bug science” with your students, with a focus on the practices, crosscutting concepts and core ideas of NGSS.

The Field Ambassador program is a professional learning community through which Chicago-area educators receive on-going professional development on the Museum’s resources—our exhibitions, collections, educational programs—and best practices in using museums to support student learning. In return, Field Ambassadors serve as liaisons between the Museum and their school community by sharing our resources with colleagues and keeping us abreast of the changing needs of the educator-audience. For more information about program dates, requirements of participation, and to download an application visit Field Ambassadors!
