Frances S. Tucker Elementary
Environmental Science, Sports & Dance Program
Every Monday-Friday we provided a FREE After-School Environmental Science, Sports & Dance Program for the students at Frances S. Tucker Elementary, in partnership with the Everglades Foundation and Miami PAL.
This program focused on Environmental Science through the Everglades Literacy Program and curriculum provided by our program partnership with the Everglades Foundation. We aimed to improve the understanding of this rich topic through interdisciplinary techniques while integrating its lesson content with their other science and non-science related curricula.
The core curriculum focuses on (a) resources to implement these lessons in the classroom; (b) reducing environmental risks and negative impacts to this fragile and unique ecosystem; (c) protecting the future of America’s Everglades for future generations; and (d) training students to make better-informed decisions. This program is aligned to the Florida Standards and Next Generation Sunshine State Standards.
