In this module, students get hands-on as they investigate different habitats. Students will use a variety of study techniquest to investigate the biotic (plants, animals, bacteria and other organic compounds) and abiotic (light, temperature, soils etc) factors. Students spend time indentifying different habitats through plant and animal identification, plant adaptations and location.
We will visit locations in the coastal temperate rainforests where students will experience the thrill of studying 1,000 year old trees and an ever changing forest floor.
During our followup sessions, students will us observations and digitial photos from their visit to prepare a short multimedia presentation.
