教學目的 The main objective is for students to: 1 reflect on the Abbott Hall of Conservation, Restoring Earth exhibit at The Field Museum, 2) understand the ways in which conservation is done and the role of scientists, organizations, and community members, and 3) share stories that relate to their own experiences in nature.
教學內容 (Step 1) In preparation for visit to the museum and Abbott Hall of Conservation, Restoring Earth exhibit, small-group discussion centers on several key questions: 1. What does conservation mean to you? 2. What is meant by the term “Restoring Earth?” 3. What are some of the ways in which scientists and community members help conserve the natural world? 4. Why does an institution like The Field Museum of Natural History collect objects? (Step 2) To help guide the conversation, explore videos from the website that touch on the many facets of conservation: http://restoringearth.fieldmuseum.org/media.html (Step 3) Students visit Restoring Earth, taking notes about stories in the exhibit that stand out to them in some way. Revisit the same questions explored in the classroom, allowing for self-guided discovery as students move through the exhibit. (Step 4) At the center of the exhibit is an interactive activity that allows one to create a digital exhibit box or “mini collection.” (see http://restoringearth.fieldmuseum.org/interactive.php for examples). As a classroom (or if time is available, students can create individual collections) design a mini collection, answering a series of questions. Random multiple-choice questions and images range from: “If you could choose a superpower, what would it be?” to “If you could explore a type of habitat what would it be?” to “How would your friends describe you?” Based on the choices made, objects are selected for inclusion in a virtual exhibit box. (Step 5) Back in the classroom, project the class’ digital exhibit box up onto a smart board or projector. Students select one object from the exhibit box that speaks to them in some way and answer one or more of the following questions: 1. Which object tells a story about a time when you were connected to nature? Please tell us about this experience. How did you feel about nature before and then after experiencing Restoring Earth? 2. Which object reminders you of something new and inspiring that you discovered in the exhibit? How and why? How might you want to be involved in Restoring Earth in the future? How and why do you think conservation is important? (Step 6) Instructor facilitates the group discussion, situates group in a circle, and discusses how respect and listening is a part of sharing stories. Students take turns passing a natural object around the circle. When it is ones turn to hold the object, they share their reflection with the group.
