For this SEPA project, we have worked with middle school teachers at four target schools in VT and NH to develop NGSS-aligned, crosscutting units designed to engage students in hands on, project-based learning activities. Our first project focused on sixth grade, and in subsequent years we will work with seventh and eighth grade teachers in our four target schools. Lesson plans and related materials can be accessed at the links below.
Other activities related to ticks include this great partnership with Dartmouth researchers and the Vermont Institute of Natural Science (VINS). Learn more about how they're tracking ticks in the local area HERE.
