Mapping Migrations Educator Training

We are very excited to announce a one-time only training for educators THIS WEEKEND.

The Arizona Game and Fish Department recently developed an activity that teaches important wildlife migration concepts in a unique and engaging manner. The activity, titled "Mapping Migration through Movement," uses the large (approximately 900 square foot) traveling map of North America from the National Geographic Society to allow students to trace the paths of migratory birds while addressing potential misconceptions. The activity won a 2012 Great Moments in Teaching Social Studies award from the Arizona Council for Social Studies.

Now, for the first time, educators can participate in this activity first-hand while also learning ways to bring large maps into the classroom.

The workshop is FREE and will be held at the South Mountain Environmental Education Center THIS SATURDAY, November 10 from 10am-noon. Participants will receive two hours of continuing education for their time.

The original activity was developed for middle school students. However, teachers of all grade levels will benefit from the workshop.

Registration is required and space is limited. For questions, contact Eric Proctor at
