Teaching Toolbox Workshop: Experience Soils!
This workshop will highlight the Soils Toolbox and feature Dr. Mitchell Power, Curator of Garrett Herbarium at the Natural History Museum of Utah and Professor of Geography at the University of Utah.
In this 5-hour Saturday session, teachers will learn about soil and sediment history, climate change, current research at the museum, visit the collections and a working lab, and learn techniques for taking and analyzing soil cores. Cross-curricular connections will be discussed, as well as alignment to core curriculum. A portion of this workshop may take place outdoors, weather permitting.
