Wild in the Schoolyard

This Wild in the Schoolyard lesson plan also includes:

Stake a few plots around the playground and conduct a scientific investigation! Budding scientists discuss what is alive, what is not, and what they think they'll find on the school playground. After a quick discussion, they head out side and collect items of interest found within the designated areas. Back in the classroom, they classify their items and determine how many of their items are alive and how many are not. They make observations to determine if their predictions made during the discussion were correct. A very well-written lesson, full of embedded teaching tips.
