My name is Robert Croft. I am a 6th grade Science teacher. I have been teaching for 37 years, all at the middle level. My personal goal in the Science classroom is to teach "hands on," "minds on" Science. It is because of this philosophy of teaching that lead me to become involved with the Climate Change Collection group. I continue to strive to locate new and challenging ways to teach difficult ideas such as climate change in a "hands on," "minds on" way. This was my interest in exploring and evaluating potential education sites for use in my classroom.
