Rivers to Range: Exploring the Pioneer: a 5-Day Institute for Grades 4-8 Educators

July 7—8:30 am - 4:00 pm

$375 – $450

For thousands of years, the Connecticut River has flowed through Pioneer Valley, shaping the land and life around it. Known for its basalt flows, mountain ranges, dinosaur footprints, and fertile soils, the Pioneer Valley exhibits a rich history of geologic change. Join us to explore opportunities for integrating science and math as you learn about the geologic history of the Pioneer Valley. Visit local field sites, delve into museum collections, and immerse yourself in inquiry-based, standards-driven investigations as you learn about how the modern landscape provides clues to a very different past.
