Hook, Line, and Anchor Phenomena!
Thursday, July 13
3:00 PM – 3:30 PM ET

The webinar will also be made available on-demand.

The elementary years are full of curiosity and exploration, making it the perfect time to lay the foundation for a lifelong love of science. In this 30-minute episode of Creating Curious Classrooms, discover how real-world phenomena help elementary teachers create that foundation and inspire students to get curious!

Learn from former school administrator, Ryan, and elementary science curriculum specialist, Erica, as they:

  • Unpack the unique opportunities and challenges that administrators face in the elementary grades
  • Demonstrate how modern instructional practices can enrich science units, such as leading with anchor phenomenon that introduces students to a mysterious real-world occurrence
  • Encourage student’s natural curiosity and get them excited to make more real-world connections throughout a science unit, and then extend their learning
  • Keep it real with engaging, flexible lessons that only need a few minutes of prep, so any educator can teach science

Together, Discovery Education and Mystery Science offer a variety of curriculum options to empower educators with time and energy to focus on what matters most.
