This 2-week (15-hour) course includes both indoor and outdoor, hands-on experiences that help Baltimore County teachers implement the 2nd grade Exploring Animals science unit. Both new and experienced teachers, often with limited science backgrounds, benefit from the content, skills and processes of this course. It covers the ecology, adaptations and diversity of vertebrates and invertebrates. An emphasis on outdoor investigations helps students apply their knowledge and skills to real-world situations. Specific topics include biodiversity; vertebrate and invertebrate ecology; aquatic organisms; nocturnal animals and bird banding. This course is co-lead by Irvine's Robert Mardiney and the zoo's Peter Martin. Maryland teachers can receive one in-service credit.
