Riparian areas provide critical habitat for 80% of all Arizonan wildlife and they need our support and understanding.
Let us help you engage your students in meaningful, hand-on activites that promote their understanding of these important habitats.
In the Riparian Habitat Exploration unit, you'll show students how to explore all aspects of riparian habitat health; engage in riparian-related career sciences; design relevant field investigations; employ engineering to develop investigation tools; implement their investigations in the field to assess the health of a riparian area; design riparian habitat improvements; and encourage students to communicate their findings to their classmates.
Join us for the Riparian Habitat Exploration Professional Development Academy and you’ll receive all instructional materials as well as ongoing coaching to support implementation, including an initial in-classroom presentation and field investigation facilitation from APW staff.
STEM Unit Objectives:
Identify elements of habitat necessary for life
Design and carry out a scientific investigation in the field.
Use data to assess ecosystem health.
Relate a riparian area to biodiversity.
Relate water use in the city to water in the natural environment.
You'll also recive 13 hours of Professional Development credit.
