Research in Science


Students in Mrs. Booth and Ms. Coppinger's classes participated in a project based learning challenge to create a public service announcement to raise awareness of an endangered species. 
To accomplish the task, each group was assigned an endangered species to research. Students in each group were assigned a role - biologist, conservationist, environmentalist and design team leader. The students used their iPads to complete the research, answering such questions as How have humans changed the endangered species' environment? Each student had 2 to 3 questions to answer to contribute to the public service announcement. The design team leader was in charge of gathering appropriate pictures to include in a Keynote presentation.
