What resource materials are available to assist my preparation, teaching?
The Discovery Science Center has online as well as tangible resources available to educators for field trips as well as classroom materials for lessons. Here is a link from the DSC website dedicated to teachers:
The site offers printable lesson plans for a variety of topics that align with science content standards and provides the schedule of FREE professional development workshops given by the DSC. At the museum, there are specific hand-outs for each grade level that align with the science content standards. These hand-outs are to be completed by students while browing the exhibits at the DSC, and encourage investigation of both familiar and unfamiliar topics. There are also free water pollution activity books that are distributed by the DSC.
