Podcasts, News articles Have yourself a BITTERSWEET FREE XMAS! (PSA) Students created a 1 minute Public Service Announcement to educate the public about the importance of NOT making/using wreaths made of bittersweet over the holidays. They suggest native alternatives and give a quick overview of a habitat restoration project we're doing on Mackworth Island. We're hoping to get this on a radio station before Christmas! http://dl.dropbox.com/u/21688976/PSA.mp3 2011-12-18 Jamien Jacobs 2
Presentations Red Maple 1 (RM 1) We found a Red Maple tree on the school property. We had to examine it over every week for several months. We took notes on what percentage of leaves were left and leaf color. My tree started with roughly 85% of green leaves and by the end there were only two leaves left. 2011-12-15 nhs.ecology 0

Science Notebooks Cattail The Cattail I am investigating is at a tall height of 154cm. It is brown with a long pointy tip on top of it. If you were to snap one in half, a bunch of white, soft feathers will fall out all over the place. 2011-11-08 61gh10 0

Science Notebooks Plant Investigation Scotch Lovage Field Notes On October 18th, my class and I went outdoors. We went to the swamp area on our school campus where we investigated different plants. Our mission was to each find a different plant and identify what type of plant it is. We took photos and sketched what our plants looked like. My plant is a light brownish color with white tiny flowers. It covers about 3/4 of my quadrate. Since it is kind of late in the season, my plant is dead. When I went outside, I measured my plant and it was a little over one meter tall. It was also surrounded by at least 2 feet of water! 2011-11-07 51jt23 0
Presentations A timeline of a Vital Signs investigation I used TimeRime to make an interactive timeline of what my Vital Signs investigation could look like. What does your investigation look like?
