Nature is constantly changing, which makes it so interesting! In this session, you’ll learn how to observe changes in nature and interpret what they might mean.
The Citizen Science Homeschool Series for 2018-19 is open to students in grades K-5. Every month, students will learn about a different citizen science project, the issues surrounding the project and how they can get involved. In addition to learning about current issues in science, students will learn and practice observation, recording and communication skills.
