Content: The PRISM (Polar Radar for Ice Sheet Measurements) Project in Lawrence, KS invites science teachers, grades 4-9, to attend a hands-on workshop illustrating how polar science topics fit into their on-going science curriculum and help students meet those all-important standards. Participants will have the opportunity to meet and talk with polar scientists, try out inquiry lessons that require simple, cheap materials, and develop online lessons and rubrics for their own students. Topics such as volcanoes, glaciers, animal adaptation, food webs and global warming will be investigated from the polar perspective.
All participants will receive classroom materials, reference data, and a CD of Antarctic photographs for classroom use.
