What is Your Part as the Teacher?
TEKS requires teachers to include activities that are difficult to reproduce in class as part of their lesson plans. This planning allows for real world interdisciplinary interaction that correlates with classroom learning. Hawaiian Falls will provide a “What to Expect and How to Prepare” email to share with the students before arrival. Upon arrival teachers will work in conjunction with the Hawaiian Falls STEAM Ahead team to orchestrate an interactive and engaging field trip. Teachers are encouraged to utilize the data collected by the students during the visit to initiate post-STEAM Ahead analysis. The Hawaiian Falls team will provide example exercises for in classroom study as a guide.
