Learning to Graph & Analyze Data I: When do Dark-Eyed Juncos Visit Bird Feeders?

This is lesson 1 of a set of 5 instructional worksheets that scaffold the skills of graphing and data analysis while building students’ background knowledge. Rather than graphing meaningless data, your students will graph and analyze scientifically meaningful data based on real-world research on wild birds.

Skills and content for Learning to Graph & Analyze Data I:

1. Leveled scaffolding in making line graphs, such as how to choose intervals, labeling axes and writing graph titles.

2. Data analysis that requires using data as evidence to support conclusions.

3. Experimental design analysis such as determining independent and dependent variables, variables held constant and forming research questions.

Construct an argument supported by empirical evidence that changes to physical or biological components of an ecosystem affect populations. Emphasis is on recognizing patterns in data and making warranted inferences about changes in populations, and on evaluating empirical evidence supporting arguments about changes to ecosystems.
Construct an explanation that predicts patterns of interactions among organisms across multiple ecosystems. Emphasis is on predicting consistent patterns of interactions in different ecosystems in terms of the relationships among and between organisms and abiotic components of ecosystems. Examples of types of interactions could include competitive, predatory, and mutually beneficial.
