Forty-five teachers at Marshall Early Learning Center actively participated in an Elementary GLOBE training workshop on Friday, August 26, 2016.  Elementary GLOBE is based in a series of science-based storybooks designed to introduce students to key concepts in water, soil, clouds, seasons, aerosols, and Earth system studies.  The teachers each selected a character in the storybook and acted out the Earth System play.  Each character – water, air, sun, earth, living things - believes they are star of the show, but they learn that they each need the other and are all connected.  NASA Langley GLOBE Trainer, Tina Harte, led the teachers through the storybook and two complimentary hands-on activities.  The teachers also developed a Word Wall to help with implementation and discussed how these resources can be implemented in their Pre-K and K curriculum.
