Curiosity is grown in this romp through pre-history

Earth's timeline grows exponentially from nowhere and the magic and hilarity never slow down! Toby shares his love of rocks and dinosaurs with students. This show ignites the imaginations of those on this archeological dig right in your school. Toby hits on rocks, finds fossils, hunts a dinosaur and meets a friendly mammal, Gregory the Sloth. 

Visiting professor Toby KID Klauenberg has presented assemblies across the world for more than 3 decades. 

This program looks back to help your student's future-focus. By empowering learners to change the world for the better by drawing on the connections between them and the world they live in.  Toby will help you help your students achieve curriculum objectives authentically. 

Through silliness, amazing magic and lots of fun this program lifts student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking.

This 45-minute journey explores and emphasizes collaboration, communication, research, problem-solving, critical thinking, and creativity for each grade level.

Project Based Learning (PBL) and Common Core Standards

 

By now, most states have adopted Common Core State Standards to help students achieve a higher level of learning with the goal of preparing them better for college and for a career. One of the most important aspects of Common Core State Standards is an emphasis on project-based learning or PBL. This type of learning is not only helping students to meet Common Core standards, but it prepares the student for deeper thinking which will help to improve their performance in all aspects of their education as well as their future careers.

 

Not only does PBL align well with Common Core standards, but it also works well with the Next Generation Science Standards that have already been adopted by more than 18 states, as of December 2016. More than 40 states have shown interest in adopting these standards and Project-Based Learning is an important tool for implementation. Here is an overview of what students are supposed to be able to do as part of the new Next Generation Science Standards:

 

Ask questions (science) and define problems (engineering)

Develop and use models

Plan and carry out investigations

Analyze and interpret data

Use mathematics and computational thinking

Construct explanations (science) and design solutions (engineering)

Engage in an argument from evidence

Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information

The goal of these new standards is to shift the focus of science education from simply acquiring knowledge of curriculum content to actually practicing science skills.
