In a unique educational opportunity for both students and their instructors, more than 300 first through eighth graders from Grant Elementary School in South Chicago Heights spent two warm sunny days in October learning about the environment.
Their teachers were college students majoring in elementary education at Governors State University (GSU). They are currently learning science education techniques and strategies from Dr. Colleen Sexton and Bruce Ketcher of the GSU College of Education.
