This early childhood professional development workshop will model remote teaching strategies while drawing upon the theme of family connections. How is your family different or the same from animal families that live in the ocean? Activities that highlight developmentally appropriate standards will be modeled for teachers, and will include exposure to WCS resources. Take this opportunity to learn how to promote scientific thinking with your young learners through play and active engagement in this atypical learning environment we find ourselves teaching in.
