Zoom Button
Zooming With Terry & Friends
 
EcoLand staff is excited to offer remote, live animal interactions to members of the Academic Content Coop and the Region 7 Head Start grant.  Like our typical registration, teachers will first check the EcoLand Event Calendar for time slots and available offerings.  Links to register for the Zooms topics are color coded purple and are embedded calendar.  Interactions last 30 minutes, and multiple classes will be attending simultaneously. 

This is a GREAT opportunity for students to practice participating in an online platform (Zoom) and learn how to ask questions, type in chats and even share their screen while you are there to help them along the way.  Don't Worry!  You can still schedule in-person visits for your class as well!

Zoom Extensions

Region VII EcoLand staff are excited to provide Zoom Extension activities for  classroom teachers and students that provide high-quality, digital instruction.  Please click the tabs below to find resources organized by Zoom topic and tied to TEKS and PreK guidelines.  Happy learning!

 

You can also click on this link for a Google Slide Presentation that incorporates each topic through the 21/22 school year.  This presentation is organized by month for easy navigation.

What our young scientists are saying...
Testimonials below

They really enjoyed all the fun tools provided for each learning center. I think having the gloves, shovels, magnifying glasses, and so much more really helped them to get into the center and enrich the learning part of it. I would like to start providing more fun tools like that in my own classroom during stations and centers, so that maybe they can really dive in and use each center to its full potential.  EcoLand was nothing short of AMAZING! My students enjoyed themselves and learned so much. We had a blast exploring each room and the students didn't want to leave. I wish we had all of those resources in our own classroom to make every day special for them.

Courtney Evans – Cushing ISD - PreK

My students' favorite part was using the magnifying glasses, rulers, & binoculars to just freely observe the garden area. I plan to work in more time especially in the spring for us to do things like that. They also really enjoyed the weigh stations with the rocks and buckets. I am going to create a Montessori lesson similar for my shelf and the students will be able to choose that as work during our Montessori block.  Students are allowed to explore and observe using scientific tools, build vocabulary, classify, sort, have discussion and explain their learning. There are so many activities that align with many of our PreK guidelines.  Our experience was great!!! The staff is so helpful and really helps the trip to run smoothly. I appreciate everything they do and their effort to always check in frequently to make sure we don't help of any kind.
