How could we use a mindset and the tools of science to find out what mammals live in the northwoods?
Students will relate concepts and processes of science to adventure as they unpack key parts of science like exploration and observation. During Northwoods Mammals, students engage in wildlife tracking field surveys–scent post survey in Spring, Summer, and Fall, and transects in Winter. The focus is on building the story of mammals in the Northwoods at Wolf Ridge and asking questions rather than identification. Thank you to BEETLES for developing the lesson sequence “What do scientists do?” as much of the class is based on that.
