HOW TO MAKE BEST USE OF FERNBANK SCIENCE CENTER PROGRAMS
The programs listed for each grade level are designed to supplement instruction you have planned for your classroom. We encourage you to include them in your daily lesson plans.
PREPARING FOR THE PROGRAM
Review the program descriptions carefully. Each program description includes standards for the program which are aligned to the Science Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE). The program description also includes the appropriate vocabulary for the lesson and some suggested pre-visit activities.
If your school requires permission slips, make sure these have been properly submitted.
If your program is outdoors, remind students the day before the program to dress appropriately.
AFTER THE PROGRAM
Most programs include follow-up activities that you can incorporate into your lesson plans.
We may give or send you a form to evaluate the program. We appreciate your taking time to do this.
