      Having a wonder wall. This is a place where they can add questions and answer questions from others. Also having them get up and move. Get out of their seats and do not just listen. This is spaced between presentation of content.

      I use a lot of open ended questions and then have students turn and talk with a partner. Getting outside is important to engage the senses in making observations.

      In my Raptor programs I have asked the children to pretend they are the predators and to find the materials they need to become that bird, (Binoculars for great eyesight, a comb to preen their feathers, a flashlight to see in the dark, etc.). I have asked students to comment on what they see at their feeders or around their yards, and to explain what they felt certain behaviors meant.

      During a workshop I try to make every activity as hands-on as possible that way the participants can learn by doing. In addition, I also try to take activities outside as much as possible.
