    Musk Ox! Exploring Science and Inquiry through WILDLIFE

Educator Professional Development Workshop hosted by the Anchorage School District Summer Academy, Fish and Game and Musk Ox Farm. Learn how to engage students in observation/inquiry methods while you get up close and personal with some live musk ox on day 2. We'll demonstrate activities that feature the scientific method, the differences between ecosystems and habitats and the food chains within them. Take back to the classroom lessons about reintroduced species and the effects on habitat, predator-prey dynamics and the framework for engaging students in their own backyard.
