Teachers new to Sensible Habitats must attend the Teacher Workshop on January 22, 2014.
Ever kiss a banana slug? From hillside to bayside, the environment around Fort Point National Historic Site displays an intriguing diversity of plant and animal life. Applying the senses, students engage in activities that help them develop an appreciation for terrestrial and aquatic habitats. They observe, describe, compare, and experience the wildlife to be found, from songbirds to rock crabs and all the little creatures in between.
Sensible Habitats utilizes a cooperative learning model. Lessons are organized so students can build on the knowledge they have already gained. The program helps meet California Science Standards for K-1.
