Investigative Case - "Home, Home on the River" part of Examples
Students will examine the complex issues that result from human use of ecologically sensitive areas. The students will investigate these issues from the point of view of their major/career path.

Subject: Environmental Science:Land Use and Planning, Geoscience:Hydrology:Surface Water, Biology:Ecology:Habitats:Freshwater

Investigative Case - "Swampeast Missouri" part of Examples
Students will explore wetland hydrology and biology and decide whether or not to restore a wetland or retain dams and drainage systems.

Subject: Geoscience:Hydrology:Surface Water:Water Management and Policy, Environmental Science:Ecosystems:Restoration/Reclamation, Biology:Ecology

Antibacterial soaps, friend or foe: An investigative case study part of MnSCU Partnership:PKAL-MnSCU Activities
This lab activity will not only draw on students' real life experiences but will also draw on student's previous lab experiences in proper laboratory techniques and data analysis performed in previous activities. The lab will incorporate the use of scientific inquiry methods and strategies while students develop reasonable answers to the questions asked.

Subject: Biology:Microbiology

Investigative Case - Protistan Tales of Atlantic White Cedar Swamps part of Examples
The Protistan Tales of Atlantic White Cedar Swamps WebQuest features a guided exploration of microbial diversity. It introduces students to the extreme habitat of the Atlantic White Cedar Swamp and encourages them to explore characteristics of the microorganisms that live there. The WebQuest applies the personification theme of Aesop's Fables as a means to acquaint students with protists. It challenges them to search for microbial "personality traits" and to implement these traits into a creative storyline.

Subject: Biology:Diversity, Microbiology, Ecology:Metabolism

Investigative Case - "Malama Keone'o'io" part of Examples
Students will learn techniques for conducting a local environmental assessment in an ecologically sensitive area. Identification of native plants and methodologies for sampling will be taught in the classroom and then reinforced in the field. The module also includes a community awareness and conservation aspect.
