Join Explorer and conservation scientist Dalal Hanna as she uncovers the effects that forests have on freshwater ecosystems. She uses a range of fascinating tools to study Canada’s streams and takes what she learns to help protect them!
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 student groups in grades 3-8 and will take place on March 23rd @ 10am and 2pm 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. Explorers will demonstrate the 21st Century Skills of creativity and innovation. The related standards are Earth’s Systems, Ecosystems, Geography and Physical Science. 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.
