Title:WS: You Be the Chemist: Essential Elements in Chemistry (P307)
Description:This will be an in depth workshop for elementary and middle school teachers. It is sponsored by the Chemical Educational Foundation (CEF) and is known as the Essential Elements. Upon completion of this workshop, K-8 teachers will have access to over 35 science laboratory activities and teaching guides that are geared to individual grade levels (K-4 and 5-8). All labs and activities use household chemicals and equipment and can be designed to meet the level of inquiry or direct instruction as deemed appropriate by the teacher. Essential Elements is based on the 5E learning cycle approach to teaching. This cycle allows students to build their own understanding of new concepts from their own experiences. During an Essential Elements workshop, an instructor will lead you through a full 5E learning cycle (ENGAGE, EXPLORE, EXPLAIN, ELABORATE, EVALUATE) utilizing exciting lessons from CEF's YBTC Activity Guides. Example labs will be: Separating Salt and Pepper, Grasping for Air (WORKSHOP - Requires Pre-Registration)
