Inspire investigations through outdoor observations and citizen science!
Investigating Evidence, one of BirdSleuth’s most successful free resources, has just been revitalized and is now in line with both Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards. From coming up with curious questions to drawing evidence-based conclusions…these lessons will help you guide your students through exciting scientific investigations.
This free curriculum includes a Teacher’s Guide, accompanying Resource and Journal pages, and rich online resources that will support you in using citizen-science projects and outdoor explorations that generate authentic scientific questions. You’ll lead your students in making observations, crafting and testing hypotheses, collecting and graphing data, drawing meaningful conclusions, and sharing their work.
If you can not print these resources or simply prefer a full-color printed copy:
We have spiral-bound copies available for $25 in our online store.
Our new self-paced course, Integrating Inquiry for Educators: Developing Student Science Practices, is designed to help educators explore the process of inquiry and scientific investigation, especially as inspired by outdoor observations and citizen-science participation. Our popular Investigating Evidence curriculum is the “textbook” for the course.
