Nature-Based Lessons Using Technology - Rincon Middle School

This film showcases seventh-graders at Rincon Middle School in Escondido exploring the nature in their schoolyard, collecting insects and other invertebrates, and learning how to observe and identify them. Students are fascinated by the details of insects they just collected in their own schoolyard as they view them through dissecting microscopes. This film documents the ease of getting students outdoors, the use of simple technology to take learning to a deeper level, and the impact of hands-on personal experiences in the students’ own schoolyards. The science teachers, principal, and nature consultant offer their perspectives on using technology for nature-based science lessons to increase student engagement and learning. This project was funded by the USDA Forest Service and sponsored by the San Diego Children and Nature Collaborative, a Program of the San Diego Science Alliance.
