Science Activities

Activities, experiments, investigations, visual aids and assessment to use with NGSS and in response to NSTA science list-serves.
Activities that enhance science education can include:
• observation (study a process) and recording of data
• color, label or draw a model 
• complete a diagram for vocabulary development
• species identification though dichotomous keys
• play a game that mimics a biologicL PROCESS (like predator prey tag)
• inquiry-based activities that use more critical thinking. i.e. theory, testing, recording data, drawing conclusions

Exploringnature.org has more than 2,000 illustrated animals. Read about them, color them, label them, learn to draw them.
