UA open house thanks K-12 teachers Saturday

The University of Arizona is kicking off National Teacher Appreciation Week with a campus-wide open house on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The UA's Teacher Appreciate Day, sponsored by Tucson Values Teachers, the University of Arizona and Champions for Change, will feature a number of activities and resources for K-12 classroom instructors.

The event will be free for teachers and up to three family members.

An expo at the College of Education will feature special exhibits and giveaways from 44 different colleges and departments at the UA, including lesson plans, software, summer programs for students, information on classroom visits by UA researchers, and more.

Attendees can sign in at UA Science: Flandrau, 1601 E. University Blvd., where teachers will receive a ID button and the chance to explore the center's planetarium and live volcano.

Children can decorate their water bottles at the center's Girl Scout's "Bedazzle a Bottle" event.

Other events include the Arizona State Museum's wide range of special activities for teachers and children, and the Poetry Center's "Young @ art" festival, where teachers and their families can help write Tucson’s longest poem.

Attendees can also enjoy a Mr. Tidy Paws and the Funtime band performance, along with haiku improvisations.
