Science Learning in the Local Environment

This community is a place where educators can share ideas about how to use their local communities and the scientific phenomena that happen around them to support children and adolescent's learning of science.

For example, tracking local weather or using the occurrence of a recent Earthquake maybe entry points into Earth science learning.

In addition to sharing your ideas, please feel free to post lessons, comment or provide feedback on one another's ideas and ask questions!
