Middle school students need to get outside and experience science. This field lab allows students to do a simple quadrat observation study in any green space around your school or during a field trip. This is a real technique used by ecologist to study populations in nature. This lab asks students to make descriptive observations of plant and animal populations in a small area. Once complete, we return to the lab to create an infographic that allows students create, analyze and evaluate their work. Students enjoy being outside and “doing” science, this is a great opportunity to make populations and communities come alive in your own backyard. Students will need a device to capture images in the field and a computer to complete the informational graphic.
