The natural world has a story to tell once we learn to read the clues. From animal tracks and holes in trees and leaves that say something about interactions to the types and numbers of organisms suggesting something about the health of an ecosystem, examine activities and investigations designed to help students begin to interpret these signs. Learn how scientists use this information to tell natural stories about the environment including creating life histories and environmental impact studies. NGSS: Patterns, LS2.A Interdependent relationships in ecosystems, LS2.C Ecosystem dynamics, functioning and resilience, ESS3.C Human impacts on earth systems.
