Science Teacher, v84 n2 p49-55 Feb 2017
This article describes a lesson in which high school biology, ecology, environmental science, anatomy, and physiology students can devise hypotheses and test them with scientific data, identify unanswered questions, and design an additional study to answer those questions. This module connects students with exciting research and current science standards and asks them to communicate their data. It also identifies extension opportunities appropriate for biology, anatomy, ecology, and environmental science courses.
