Tracking Energy is a 3-part professional development series designed to help educators understand food systems; growing, producing, processing and disposing of food. And help students draw connections to climate change and food justice issues. This series will focus on the question: What are we throwing away when we throw away food? Educators (playing the part of a student), will walk through multiple sequential transferable lessons that incorporate creating and revising models, data collection and analysis, and designing solutions. Educators will spend time in multiple learning environments. This series is designed to support 3-D NGSS performance expectations for the 5th-grade band endpoint, though the altered material will be demonstrated to reach middle school.
The lessons in this course are sequential and build off knowledge learned in previous lessons. Attendance for all three days is requested.
As always our programs are free! Please register here by Tuesday, April 12th. Contact Sasha Savoian at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
