Hands-on Lessons Explore Climate Science & Carnivores

 

Science classes at the Snoqualmie Valley School District’s Parent Partnership Program (P3) are engaged in a multidisciplinary climate change study.  Through a partnership with the Climate Science Alliance in California and the North Bend Ranger Station, students are enjoying hands-on science experiences.

 

“Students in this lesson are analyzing the skulls of mammals to identify carnivore traits as they study the larger implications of climate change on carnivore ecosystem populations,” explained Teacher Samantha Randall.  P3 teachers applied for and were awarded a grant from the Climate Science Alliance last summer, which is supporting engaging science curriculum and learning experiences.
