Region 4 Update: February/March 2022
San Diego formal and informal educators got outside together to Hike, Explore, and Learn. We had a fabulous day outside as a group, enjoyed a break in the rainy December weather, and learned new strategies to use with students. The group Interviewed an Organism using a protocol from the BEETLES Project and had a chance to informally discuss student learning in nature. Getting educators outdoors together has been a helpful way to stay connected in person! As our days are getting longer, give yourself the opportunity to spend time outside, alone or with colleagues.
