I now have pages of notes to sift through and determine what I can use in my classroom. Although not every topic during the academy fits into my fifth grade curriculum, I definitely walked away with a better grasp on how to inspire awe in my science class and am committed to better journaling practices in my classroom. The up-close photography and scientific drawings we practiced brought home to me how poorly I have been teaching the skill of observation. I look forward to sharing my photos and experience with my class. But first, I need a little rest and recovery from the action-packed week!
