Join the Geographic Society of Chicago GSC for BioBlitz Big Marsh on Saturday, Sept. 30. Teams of volunteer scientists, families, students, teachers, and other community members will work together to find and identify as many species of plants, animals, microbes, fungi, and other organisms as possible.
So looking forward to the annual gathering of our wonderful Illinois educators at the IETC! This year Judy and I will be presenting on Geoinquiries: Click here for presentation resources: https://thinkgeospatial.education/presentations/2016-ietc/
Below is break out session description:
GeoInquiries are easy-to-use instructional resources combining traditional social studies topics with interactive maps. Each of the 45 GeoInquiries has been developed & field-tested by educators. These 15-minute activities may be presented from a single computer/projector. No installation, fees, or logins are necessary. At the workshop you will explore GeoInquiry collections & will see how to integrate them into your lessons. Please bring a device (laptop, chromebook, iPad etc.) and your textbook to this hands-on workshop.
A shout out to all the teachers who are celebrating GIS Day in place today! You might not be able to get away for a big event, but your day-to-day contributions in the classroom are appreciated and noticed! You are our heroes!
