Overview

Be it rural green or urban asphalt, the schoolyard is a host to a multiplicity of life. Students, grades 3-6, become schoolyard ecologists, learning key ecological and biological concepts as they investigate their most immediate environment.

Biological sampling and mapping techniques develop mathematical capabilities. Student journals and an introduction to environmental writing provide strong language arts connections.
