In-person Workshop: Teaching Natural Sciences through East Asian Picture Books
In Fall 2023, TEA will offer an in-person workshop in collaboration with the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. This program is aimed at elementary and middle school teachers interested in integrating picture books into science and/or social studies instruction. The workshop will focus on the teaching of the natural sciences and the cultures of East Asia in Colorado classrooms. The five books featured address specific Colorado standards in life science, earth science, and social studies. By using these specific picture books that deliver the content with accuracy, teachers will help students gain literacy and visual skills as they read and examine the materials.
