Lesson 5: Why and How Do I Conduct a Study Site Evaluation?
In the first activity, students will talk about the different approaches that can be taken to researching in science, with a specific focus on those approaches that are most useful for urban ecology. They will then complete an initial physical and biological assessment of their field site using a data collection form. Students will use the field study site in this and other modules so they need to understand why it is important to conduct an initial survey of their site. Students will also generate some initial questions that they have about their study site.
