Two representatives with the Traveling Naturalist Program visited Hoffman Middle School seventh graders recently. The Traveling Naturalist Program presented by Harris County Precinct One, is an educational program that brings nature to life.
Over the course of three days, Ana Aita-Cherry, senior naturalist, and Raven Bell, naturalist assistant, presented a program about the organization of animal body systems to every seventh grade science class. Each presentation helped reinforce lessons students learned in their science classes.
Each session offered through the Traveling Naturalist Program is designed to enhance the curriculum of science and biology classes. The goal of the program is to establish an understanding of the natural world and its inhabitants. Participation helps students gain a broad understanding of various habitats and characteristics. Students also learn to appreciate nature and their environment by interacting with exotic and native animals.
“The program is an exciting, interactive way to build a greater understanding of the subject matter,” said Dwanna Callaway, information literacy specialist. “More than 330 seventh grade students got the opportunity to participate and were able to pet the small animals brought for the presentation.”
