As part of the 2017 Geological Association of Canada and Mineralogical Association of Canada annual conference at Queen’s University, the Miller Museum of Geology is hosting a hands-on training workshop to help teachers with their teaching of Earth Sciences in the classroom. This one-day course, including classroom instruction and an afternoon field trip, will help give teachers a better understanding of rocks, minerals and fossils, and will provide an extensive kit including mineral test equipment, a kit to grow crystals in the classroom with your students, and a large number of geological samples for the classroom.
The course is open to current K-12 teachers, and teacher-candidates who will soon graduate from Teacher’s College.
For more information and to register for this workshop, download the registration online.
Also, please contact Mark Badham at the Miller Museum of Geology to express interest in attending. Only 20
registrants will be accepted.
This workshop is sponsored and supported by the Miller Museum of Geology at Queen’s University, the Canadian Geoscience Education Network, and the 2017 GAC MAC Conference in Kingston, Ontario, Canada.
