About this Event

Join Explorer and tropical biologist Carmen Chavez as she uncovers the wildlife living in the Amazon Rainforest using specialized camera traps. Hear how learning the English language has supported her on her path to becoming a National Geographic Explorer! This event is hosted in collaboration with National Geographic Learning, our partner in English language teaching and learning.

Explorer Classroom is an interactive session that connects learners with National Geographic Explorers for short lessons and Q&A. After the featured Explorer’s lesson, your students will have a chance to have their questions answered in real time! This event is recommended for students ages 11-18 and will take place on March 28th @ 12pm ET; register for the time that works best for your class. A recording of the event will be available to watch on-demand on our YouTube channel if your students cannot attend live.

This school year, each month will be organized around a specific theme to help students build an #ExplorerMindset. March’s theme is Exploration! We’ll focus on building the attitudes of curiosity and empathy, and the skills of using geographic practices, geographic perspectives and critical thinking. Teachers, we’ve also created a new interactive guide, Explorer Mindset in Action! Share this with your students to take them on a learning journey with each of our Explorers that sparks curiosity, builds empathy, and empowers ALL learners to take action.
