Technology as a Tool of Science

High schoolers monitor streams, take stream surveys, collect chemical and macro-invertebrate and stream discharge data. Using a digital camera, students observe the percentage of various types of vegetation on the flood plan, riparian area and stream bank. They take video clips of each type of water quality test and use word processing and database technology to organize information and describe the site. High schoolers construct an illustrated story of their site and how it changed over time.

Lesson Planet helps me find fantastic ideas to spin off of and approach with my alternative education high school students. They can be difficult to motivate and sometimes when I'm just out of ideas- this site gives me just what I need to add to motivate them!
