Currently, teacher trainings are for Alachua County Public School teachers only.
These three-hour sessions support educators in planning successful school group visits, conducting inquiry classroom activities and deepening their science content knowledge. Activities and resources are connected to the National Geographic science curriculum for grades K-5. Teachers earn in-service points upon completion.
Titanoboa: Monster Snake

Florida Museum of Natural History scientists recently discovered 65-million-year-old remains of the largest snake in the world, Titanoboa cerrejonensis, in a Colombian coal mine. Travel back in time to explore questions about the discovery, reconstruction and implications of this enormous reptile. Study fossil plants and animals from the earliest known rainforest and learn how paleontologists collect fossils in the field and prepare them for study and display. This workshop will provide resources to connect the exhibit content to the classroom. SC.K.N.1.4, SC.1.E.6.1, SC.2.N.1.1, SC.3.N.1.7, SC.4.N.1.7, SC.5.L.15.1
