Lesson 8 - Animal Encounters

When you find an animal in the field, there is no way to know how long you will be able to observe it. It helps to have a plan to allow you to get the most out of what you see. This activity is a template for action: Begin by verbalizing your observations, then start using words, pictures, and numbers to record the information in your journal. In this lesson, students will follow up their journaling with online research to learn more about their subject.
