From climate change to natural disasters: how tiny critters invoke joy and reveal environmental secrets. There are many species of wildlife that school age citizen scientists can monitor. But most scatter when humans are around. By contrast, arthopods – animals with jointed legs and no backbones – are abundant, diverse and found in all types of habitats. Building on his article in Green Teacher’s Summer 2016 issue, Dan will share the techniques he has used for 20 years to engage students in authentic field-based data collection. He’ll also explain how to add their findings to the databases of citizen science programs so that the students’ work will have meaning beyond their own classrooms.
