The Herpetology Project
Vacchina, Peter; Aguirre, Mary
Science Teacher, v75 n8 p50-55 Nov 2008
In this article, the authors describe their ongoing experience with the Herpetology Project. Through this field study, students catch and track amphibians and reptiles in the Assabet River area, record and analyze data, share their findings with the community, and ultimately, work toward protecting turtles' habitats. The authors chose to focus on turtles in this article because they helped to inspire the project and because they have a method of tracking their recapture. (Contains 5 figures and 2 online resources.)
