TI: Students As Researchers In An Inquiry Based Classroom
AU: *Quintero, D L
AF: Science, St. Lucie West K-8, Port St. Lucie, FL, USA
A teacher who participated in the National Science Foundation supported ARMADA Project through the University of Rhode Island Office of Marine Programs will share a series of lessons based on her experiences working with marine researchers. All of the activities are hands-on, inquiry based for use in elementary and secondary classrooms. The primary objective of these lessons is to give students a better understanding of what real scientist do and why. This enables students to make a real world connection with the scientific community. The emphasis on environmental monitoring will help develop an understanding of the positive and negative consequences of human action on the Earth's oceans. It will enhance the student's observation skills and increase their ability to record and analyze data.
