This Lab/Activity can be used strictly as fieldwork or to assist in visual application to the in class content. As the year progresses, and as each new topic is introduced, students apply that to their observations. Often times it is simply the cloud observation. Other times it may be as detailed as finding evidence of a predator /prey relationship. This lab assists and enhances their observation skills, their data collection skills, the importance of detailed note taking and may guide students toward a form of analysis. It is fun and always engaging for ALL level. Teacher Tips and Student Directions included.
I have included the rubric that I use, it is simple and can certainly be adjsuted for your own use.
