Matter Matters – 5th Grade

“Matter Matters” – 5th Grade:  “They’re just birds.  It’s just a balloon. One piece of litter doesn’t matter.”  This program will help us understand that every choice, every day, matters and makes a difference.  We will take a deeper look into the research of Teton Raptor Center and piece together how individual efforts across the globe can have a major impact on all of Earth’s systems (ESS3-1).    Live raptors, activities/games appropriate for a variety of learners, and FUN are a part of every TRC program.
