How a Fourth Grade Teacher Engaged Students in Science: A Year of Marine Science Investigation

Ana Thomas, Fourth Grade Teacher at Peralta Elementary, in Oakland, California, understands the difference a day exploring science in the field makes in the lives of students. Last spring, we received an email from Ana, reading: "My students are fired up about science and thankful for their learning opportunities. Sending appreciation to the institutions and educators that inspired deeper research. This video celebrates field study, peer education, and expository writing. Thank you for supporting marine science!" After viewing her student's fantastic appreciation video, and learning more about the depth to which her students took their investigation, we wanted to chat with Ana to learn more!
