In this one-time class, learners will be introduced to the concept of citizen science by exploring new facts about fascinating fireflies! We will look at topics including their life cycle, bioluminescence, habitat, and population patterns. By the end of the course, students will be ready to participate in a citizen science study about firefly population and be ready to share their new knowledge with their friends and family as they see fireflies in their backyards in the summertime! To end...
Students will learn fascinating facts about fireflies, as well as be introduced to the concept of citizen science!
Slime materials: - 5 oz Elmer’s Glow in the Dark Glue - baking soda - contact lens solution - Spoon - Bowl Note: all students will need a space to create their slime (a table or kitchen counter work best!) as well as tablespoon and teaspoon measuring units.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
