This activity is a field investigation where students collect insects to analyze, observe, and classify

Our Big Backyard part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a field investigation where students venture out into their own backyard to observe and record data on living things and see how these things change throughout the seasons.

Making Observations and Drawings part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is designed to help students understand the importance of observations in science. It encourages them to work on the skill of observation and communicating those observations to others in the process of scientific inquiry.

Investigating the difference in geology between Crookston High Campus and the Fertile Sand Dunes part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
Students will make observations at two different locations and will infer the geological events that happened at each location to explain what they see and create questions for further study.

Investigating Ponds and Streams: How clean is our water? part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a field investigation where students gather data on ponds and compare the results to determine the quality of the water.

Investigation a food web: producers, consumers, and decomposers part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a field investigation where students list plants and animals they observe. Students will organize their data as producers, consumers, or decomposers and create a food web showing how they affect each other. They will predict what will happen if the food web becomes imbalanced by extinction or over population.

YOU are a scientist part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a field investigation where students will discover that everyone can be a scientist.
