Join Explorer and conservation photographer Carlton Ward and learn how he is working as an ambassador for the recovery of the Florida panther. This plan calls for the conservation of hundreds of thousands of acres of ranchlands and forests across Florida! This event is hosted in collaboration with National Geographic 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 13-18 and will take place on May 3rd @ 1pm 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. May’s theme is Wildlife! We’ll focus on building the attitudes of curiosity and empathy, and the skills of applying geographic perspectives, acquiring geographic knowledge, and taking informed action. Explorers will demonstrate the 21st Century Skills of critical thinking and problem solving. The related standards are Earth and Human Activity, Ecosystems, and Geography. 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.
#ExplorerClassroom is for everyone! All events are free.
There are two ways to participate in the virtual event, as a featured class on screen or watching live on YouTube. If space is available, you may request to be a featured class during the registration process.
