Lillian Mongeau reports that programs Santa Clara County and Los Angeles are providing a year-long science curriculum at little to no cost to districts.
Close to fifty Mountain View fourth graders are tramping through a county park in the hills above their town. They’re chasing after lizards, examining woodpecker holes and throwing twigs into speedy streams. It looks awesomely fun. But it’s supposed to be more than just fun. It’s supposed to be science class. Tour Guides from a non-profit called Environmental Volunteers are leading small groups of kids through the park. John Seyfarth’s group stops to smell the sage.
Seyfarth: Take a good sniff, OK? So can anybody guess why we call it cologne or cowboy cologne?
