If I could only attend one session at the NSTA national conference in Chicago this week, it would be the Elementary Extravaganza! I had so much fun presenting last year but missed walking around to glean ideas and freebies from the other presenters. This year it will be held on Friday, March 13 8:00 AM – 10:00 AM, in the McCormick Place, Skyline W375c Room.
Here’s why this Extravaganza is not to be missed! Join preschool and elementary groups of professionals for an exceptional opportunity. The room is filled with presenters at their own tables sharing ideas and resources for use in your classroom immediately. Engaging hands-on activities such as Ramps and Pathways physical science and engineering, strategies to excite and encourage your students, a preview of the best trade books available, information about award opportunities, contacts with elementary science organizations and the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) for teachers of children ages 0-8 years old, sharing with colleagues, door prizes, and much more will be available to participants.
Walk away with a head full of ideas and arms filled with materials.
Organizations participating in the Elementary Extravaganza include:
- Council for Elementary Science International
- NSTA Preschool Elementary Committee
- Science & Children authors and reviewers
- Society of Elementary Presidential Awardees
