“Adventures in Antarctica”

Dr. Sarah Cecire, professor of education, will discuss “Adventures in Antarctica” at Friday Colloquium on Dec. 2, 2016. The presentation is free and open to the public beginning at 4 p.m. in Centennial Hall’s Stutzman Lecture Hall. 

Cecire spent the fall 2015 semester on sabbatical researching, planning and studying Antarctica including a two-week trip to the continent. The pre-planning, along with the trip, resulted in the creation of 18 teaching units available to elementary teachers with Antarctica as the backdrop.

The lessons range from “The Penguins of Antarctica” to “Water, Water Everywhere.” The units integrate various subject areas such as language arts, math, physical education, science, social studies, technology and art.
