ENTICE Animal Adapations and the Next Generation Science

9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Animal adaptations are directly related to several of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Come to this workshop to learn the types of adaptations that animals in Illinois exhibit, how they are important for survival, how they can vary among individuals of the same species and how they can be related to specific habitats and behaviors. We’ll provide you with activities and resources that are relevant to the NGSS (K-LS1-1 , 1-LS1-1, 1-LS1-2, 2-LS2-2, 3-LS4-2, 4-LS1-1) and will allow for easy incorporation into your classroom. Although targeted to grades kindergarten through four, teachers of other grade levels are welcome to attend but may need to adapt the information as appropriate. Professional Development Hours are available. Sponsored by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, this workshop is part of the ENTICE (Environment and Nature Training Institute for Conservation Education) program.
