Ambitious projects

  • 2-6 hrs set up
  • Mutiple variables
  • Mutiple measurements/observations
  • Strict data protocol

 

  • Data requires cleaning and management
  • Reporting protocols to external project
  • 2+ classroom discussions
  • 2-4hrs of teacher PD required
Phenology calendar: Multiple species
Estimated time required:

5 periods or more, plus student observations

Research question:

When do the phenological features appear?  How do they compare to other measurements — in other locales, and in prior years?

Applicability:

Science Practices: 1,3,4,8

NGSS and MA Standards: 6.MS-LS1-3, 7.MS-LS-4, 7.MS-LS2-1, 8.MS-LS1-5

Invasive species census: Four or more species
Estimated time required:

Protocol under development

Research question:

What invasive species are present, how does their abundance compare to other areas and previous years, how does the regional climate compare to that of their habitat of origin?

Applicability:

NGSS and MA Standards: 7.MS-LS2-4
