Humpback whales are among the most awe-inspiring marine mammals. New England Aquarium educators have developed a workshop to help teachers build on that enthusiasm. Come learn about hands-on classroom lessons that focus on Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Share ideas for integrating information to support curriculum learning goals. Staff from the New England Aquarium will facilitate the workshop, which includes an introduction and preview of the IMAX film, Humpback Whales, from the MacGillivray Freeman Films Educational Foundation. The workshop will also draw on information about local whale populations.
Educators attending the preview workshop will receive the MacGillivray Freeman's Humpback Whales Guide for Classroom Teachers, access to resources in the Teacher Resource Center at the New England Aquarium and the skills to take key concepts introduced in the film back to the classroom.
