- A project of LSF
In this activity students use invertebrates they find in a nearby green space to practice making scientific observations and to design and conduct an experiment.
Day One: Making Observations.
Day Two: Research Design.
Day Three: Conducting the Research.
Emphasis and direction is provided on the safe and humane handling of invertebrates. The resource provides all the necessary background for teachers to support student learning and discussion questions to assess successful completion and understanding of each day’s activities are included.
Skills related to conducting research in science (observing, recording, analyzing, drawing conclusions) are taught to and practiced by the students.
In addition to the curriculum connections identified in this review, the focus on how to carry out or 'do' science makes this resource relevant to other courses and programs that introduce students to the nature of scientific investigation.
