Project: Change over time

Graphs and tables are just one way that we can communicate scientific findings.

Did you monitor a species or a habitat as it changed through the seasons? Did you explore change over time in the presence of invasive species? There are many cool tools to help you show and explain the changes you uncovered!


Make an iMovie

1. Grab and organize your photos:

  • If you observed a plant or a habitat over time, use the photos that you took at various time intervals.
  • For Mission: Analysis - Change over time, take a screen shot of the VS map for each of the date ranges you're investigating.

2. Put your photos into iMovie

3. Add a narration, text slides, or music that helps tell the story of the change you see happening.

4. Put your video or podcast on YouTube, Vimeo, VoiceThread, or Podcast Alley

5. Paste the link to your video in the Project Bank
