Product Description
Use the endangered Pacific Northwest Tree Octopus to help your students learn about how to identify reliable scientific sources. The key to this assignment is to be excited about your introduction of this organism and to not let on that the website is a hoax! I had my 10th graders super excited about the tree octopus and were intently researching for a majority of the class period until someone finally said, "This seems made up!" By utilizing Google drive, students can add their own ideas to the slideshow in real time and share their ideas. If you don't have 1:1 online devices, students can still share ideas and the teacher can add them to the Slides. We use this lesson to start a discussion about doing good scientific research.
