Educator Workshop: Phriendly Physics Teacher Workshops Grades 3-5

Description: Phriendly Physics is a physical science program including field trips to the Lederman Science Center for elementary students and a professional development program for teachers.

Align your 3–5 physical science instruction to the Next Generation Science Standards. Topics will focus on force and motion, electricity and magnetism, light and color, and structure and properties of matter. Participant needs will also be addressed. Learn how to use anchoring phenomenon throughout your unit while incorporating the science and engineering practices into your classroom. Discussion will also focus on the importance of storylining and using literacy to link your science instruction.

Participants will have the opportunity to tour Fermilab and ask scientists and engineers your questions. By participating in our workshop you will be able to bring your students on free field trips to the lab!
