Today's students completed their first round of observations. They learned the difference between qualitative and quantitative observations. Students will be collecting data over the next several weeks. The dad I will be analyzed and used to determine if the ecosystem met the needs of the organisms. Participating in hands-on science provide students the opportunity to become scientists. They have the criteria for success and now all they have to do is follow it, explore and learn.
