What Do Amphibians Have to Offer?: Students Monitor and Map Amphibians in Local Pond Habitats
Eareckson, Lee Anne
Science Teacher, v69 n5 p48-51 May 2002
Students value participation in meaningful research. They feel empowered when they effect positive change in their communities. They also have a strong affinity for frogs and toads, although they vehemently deny this at the start of the school year. In addition, most students recognize the value of using computer technology to solve world problems. This article discusses the Monitoring Amphibians on the Palouse (MAP), a cooperative project of the University of Idaho and Moscow High School sophomore biology students, that combines all of these interests by monitoring and mapping local amphibian populations.
