On Friday, I spent the day in Mrs. Oshinski's seventh grade science classroom. We were talking to her students about an upcoming science news article assignment. There is a pathfinder on the LC website with resources to help students find online news sources and link to Easybib to cite their chosen articles.
The other half of the class, I was thrilled to be able to share about some of my experiences in Namibia over the summer. I did a study abroad with the University of Maryland iSchool. Our first two weeks were spent exploring libraries in the country and a third week was spent on safari. I was happy to be able to share some of what I learned and experienced that had science ties with the students.
