The Anchorage Museum has created a home edition of the Science Passport that uses the important science skills of: observation, thoughtful questioning and experimentation to learn more about the world around the home. This lesson plan gets students outside to examine different stop sign-sized areas of ground.
Questions are designed for 4-8th grades, but the activities can be easily adapted for K-12.
- Learn about biotic and abiotic factors, land cover types, and saturated ground
- Compare and contrast different areas of the ground
- Use data sheets to make and record observations
- Think critically and support answers with evidence
