Going on a Science Trek!
Kreider, Gail Yohe
Science Scope, v31 n7 p36-40 Mar 2008
In this problem-based learning activity (PBL), students embark on a science trek to answer the question "Where is the science in my neighborhood?" The project serves as an excellent review of science curriculum in anticipation of Virginia's year-end standardized test--the Standards of Learning (SOL). This has proved to be an interesting way to integrate the principles they have studied, as well as some yet to be studied, and to correlate to the standards of learning. (Contains 2 figures.)
