News and Notes from Saint Pius V School
Science on the Go! with the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum
St. Pius V students in grades 2, 4 and 5 are participating in the Science on the Go! program with the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum. The teachers will be receiving professional development training to become more comfortable teaching science through NGSS–aligned lessons that are hands-on, inquiry-based, and incorporate cooperative learning. The students will experience 9 interactive lessons, 3 taught by a Museum Educator. The students will also have opportunities to interact with specimens and resources from their living and preserved collections. As a culminating activity, the students will go on an all expense paid field trip to the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum in Lincoln Park.
