Teacher trainings support educators in deepening their science content knowledge, conducting inquiry classroom activities and planning successful school group visits. Teachers interact with scientists and learn how to connect exhibit content to classroom curriculum.

Activities and resources are aligned with the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards and teachers earn in-service points upon completion.

This training is for Alachua County Public Schools fourth-grade teachers only.

Thanks to the generosity of the Florida Museum Associates along with the support of the school district, Alachua County Public Schools fourth-graders will explore the Permian Monsters: Life Before the Dinosaurs exhibit, participate in standards-based classroom activities and explore other Museum exhibits during a two-hour field trip.

In preparation for the field trips, fourth-grade teachers in this training will:

  • Explore the Permian Monsters exhibit.
  • Preview activities that can be used before and after field trips.
  • Receive resources to use in the classroom.
  • Become familiar with the logistics for making a successful Museum field trip.
  • Earn in-service points.
