Biodiversity PEEK STEAM Curriculum
Biodiversity PEEK students spend time outside observing and wondering about the wild plants and animals we often overlook. Biodiversity PEEK kids do real, meaningful citizen-science using digital photography and an international database. Through a guided nature journal students develop their own questions, investigate/research some of these questions, share their findings and develop a feasible biodiversity project.
Hands-on learning about streams within and outside of the classroom. This four week long curriculum contains six sections, including a field trip to collect data that will contribute to the Water Action Volunteers Program. Aligned with Science Standards.
ZooTeach is a website where teachers and educators can share high quality lesson plans and resources that complement the Zooniverse citizen science projects. Citizen science offers a unique opportunity for any person, of any age, of any background to get involved and make a contribution to cutting edge science. Here at Zooniverse headquarters we believe that getting students involved in citizen science offers educators a free, easily accessible and inspiring opportunity to bring real science into the classroom.
