An Exploration Since its inception in 2005, Exploring North Carolina has been watched with particular excitement by students, teachers and school administrators across the state.

Exploring North Carolina

Each episode in the series — a unique partnership between the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, UNC-TV and Natural World Productions — is a mini-adventure featuring detailed information on the plants, animals, geology and history (natural and social) of North Carolina’s greatest places. Now, thanks to the support of the William R. Kenan Trust, DVDs containing selected episodes of the series are being delivered at no cost to middle and secondary public schools statewide. A dedicated group including teachers, naturalists from the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences and staff from series creators Natural World Productions, have been working for the past year to segment a dozen ENC episodes into smaller topic-driven chapters.

Sorry for the lack of posts this week. I have been swimming in work and haven't had a moment to post anything. In the past week, I have created and/or significantly revised 48 different literacy center activities, eight activities in six different literacy areas. That means thinking of what I need them to be, then typing them up, putting them in folders, and listing all the extra materials and copies I need to gather in school to complete the centers. Of course, the type A in me also had to search Google for 48 different clip art images to make each one fun. I'm posting today about an instructional technique I used in class this week with great success. Have you tried TEXTMAPPING?

Let Me Think : Adventures in a School Library

I'd been wanting to start some inquiry with the primary grades, and decided to begin a unit in which we got to know a lot more about an animal we see every day. We began with a very standard approach. We discussed what students already knew, or though they knew, about these animals. Everyone was able to share in the discussion as we described what squirrels are like, where they live and what they do. Our inquiring minds then produced a great deal of questions they had about squirrels. Smithsonian Science. Explore our Curriculum & Resources.
