Species Cards Skills Round Robin We are fortunate to do this as a four person team and this is a sheet for students to take with them as they go through a "round robin" of skills to be prepared to go outside to collect their data. This will probably be used during twice as it has 8 skills on it, or even more times, if you have less teachers doing Vital Signs at your school. 2010-12-12 jdrake 0
Blog entries Watch Out, It's Vital Signs Time! What to say about Vital Signs? It's been a great experience both as a teacher and as a learner. My students showed an amazing amount of growth between the first and second investigations. While part of it was painful (it turns out that almost none of them actually took notes outside the first time), they learned a very valuable lesson and did much better the second time around. It took me longer than I had originally anticipated, but then again what new ideas/programs ever take up the exact amount of time we originally think. 2010-12-13 gmeader01 0

Research reports Juniper Plant Identifying We are trying to identify all the plants on the Massabesic Middle School campus in East Waterboro Maine. We have went outside a few times and I have found a plant. The plant was called Juniper and I have to submit it this way. My plant is not on vital signs so this is the only way I can submit. 2011-01-24 4CH12 0
Posters "Superstar" art! Calling all artists! Vital Signs species expert "Superstar" is a scientist by day and artist by night. Check out his recent painting of a brittle star. It's quite super. While this painting is for inspiration, he promises more detailed and technical paintings for ID purposes in the future. Check it out, and tell our Superstar what you think of his hidden talent! 2011-01-24 gmri 0
Posters An expert's sketch book Vital Signs species expert "razorbill" always keeps a sketch book around when he's out in the field. Here's a peek at what this scientist-artist was carefully observing while doing seabird colony research with Maine Audubon. Check out his art, and let him know what you think. Better yet, post your own sketches of what you see while out looking for species! 2011-01-24 gmri 0
