How I Use It
This data collection could be used for a variety of science topics such as population study or general ecology. I placed students in teams to collect data using our grounds and then reported as a whole class.
My Take
This is a nice site to use for data collection. The website offers several different species to track and report sightings. The teacher tab offers a plethora of helpful items including assessment options, professional development, standards correlation and varying strategies.This site could be used as little or as much as teacher wants to incorporate into their classrooms.
