Learn new ways to teach science using examples from Hawaiian ecosystems. This course will cover the emergence of the Hawaiian Islands, native flora and fauna, and present day invasive species issues. Play with glo-germ, Google Earth, and a fast-paced forest bird card game. Workshop includes two days of hands-on activities and guest scientists with a half day field trip into The Nature Conservancy's Waikamoi cloud forest.
Hō‘ike o Haleakalā teaches high school science through Hawai‘i-specific modules based on our unique ecosystems: Alpine/Aeolian, Rain Forest, Coastal, and Marine, with a new module in progress on Invasive Species. Engaging lessons include group activities, games, slide shows, labs, journal topics, and in-depth research projects. The workshop will feature presentations by Maui educators and resource managers, as well as sample lessons from each module. All material is tied to Hawai‘i state benchmarks. Brand new lessons explore invasive species issues and allow students to conduct citizen science.
