Exploring Sugarloaf Cove: Investigating the Geology of Lake Superior's North Shore. part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a field investigation where students make observations of the pebble beach, lava flows, and wetland restoration at Sugarloaf Cove to generate questions to be addressed throughout the earth science curriculum.

Subject: Environmental Science, Geoscience

Investigating Animals: Interdependence of Life In A Habitat part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a field investigation where students will observe, discuss, and gather evidence on how environmental changes affect animals that live in that habitat.

Subject: Geoscience, Environmental Science, Biology:Ecology

Using Simpson's Reciprocal Index to Identify and Compare Habitat Biodiversity part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a field investigation where students will compare the biodiversity of two separate habitats based on the collection and identification of insects.

Subject: Biology:Diversity, Environmental Science:Ecosystems:Ecology

Outdoor Light Sources and their Attractibility to Nocturnal Insects part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
In this field exploration, student teams (consisting of 3 students) will investigate whether incandescent, fluorescent or a no light situation will attract the most nocturnal insects.

Subject: Environmental Science:Ecosystems:Ecology

Ecosystem Change and Insect Visitation Rates part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is an open-ended inquiry investigation in which students analyze and predict how an environmental change will affect the visitation rates of insects. Students will ask a question, develop multiple hypotheses, run a scientific investigation, and report their findings to their "colleagues".

Subject: Environmental Science:Ecosystems

Comparing Soil Samples from different locations part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
In this field investigation, students compare various soil samples taken from specific locations. Students compare samples, record data, create a chart or graph, and journal.

Subject: Environmental Science:Soils and Agriculture, Geoscience, :Soils

Stream Study: An Investigation of an Aquatic Ecosystem part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a field study where students gather data on a stream based upon their protocol. They will correlate their data with another group and present their results to the class. They will develop and defend in class a new experimental question for a spring study.

Subject: Geoscience, Environmental Science:Water Quality and Quantity, Environmental Science

Making Sense of Macroinvertebrates part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a field investigation where students gather and observe macroinvertebrates in a pond system. From their initial observations, students will formulate a question and test procedures.

Investigating the Ecology of Goldenrod Galls through Biological Sampling part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a field investigation where students conduct biological sampling on goldenrod galls and form conclusions.

Subject: Environmental Science:Ecosystems

Stream Study: Assessing the relative health of streams by macro-invertebrate collection and Identification part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a field investigation where students gather data on stream health by collecting macro-invertebrates at three different locations and then develop an experimental question through land use and topographic map research to explain differences in water quality.
