Integrating the Young Naturalist Awards into Your Science Curriculum
We’ve spoken with teachers throughout the country to learn how they integrate the Young Naturalist Awards competition into their science curriculum.
Some teachers make it a semester or year-long project and require each student in their class to participate. Others suggest the contest to students in their science clubs or present it as an extra credit project. Engaging your students in independent research might seem daunting.
Dividing the project into smaller tasks that students can complete over the course of the school year or even just one single semester makes it much more doable.
