We invite you to join us on a Virtual Field Trip to learn more about the The Great Lakes on Friday. Hosted by Great Lakes Now and Detroit PBS KIDS, the Virtual Field Trip is TOMORROW — Friday, Nov. 1 from 10-10:30 a.m. ET.
With the help of our online screening tool, OVEE (Online Viewing and Engagement Experience), teachers, along with their students will watch the virtual tour on lessons covering the importance of coastal wetlands, the danger of algal blooms and a deep dive into lake sturgeon.
Each 5-minute video will be followed by a Q&A section where students can ask our experts questions about what they’ve seen and go deeper into Great Lakes topics and issues.
- Katherine O’Reilly, aka Dr. Katfish, Coastal Wetland Expert
- Gary Abud, Educational Consultant
- Sandra Svoboda, Great Lakes Now, Program Director
- Tara Hardy, Education Leader, Detroit Public TV
This experience is targeted for 6-8th grade, but is certainly not limited to this age group! Sign-up for the virtual field trip to preview the content in advance of the November 1 event to see if it’s right for your class.
Teachers, please join us with your students on just about any electronic device – smart boards, desktops, or tablets.
After you sign up, you will be sent an email with a link to the videos and lesson plans for your review. Lesson plans were designed by 2014 Michigan Teacher of the Year, Gary Abud, and are aligned to the state standards for Michigan.
Teachers, join us with your students on just about any electronic device – smart boards, desktops, or tablets.
