Title Description
Citizen Science Projects in the Classroom

This powerpoint was utilized in a 300-level teacher training class at the University of Arizona. It would also be appropriate for a teacher training workshop at a site or as an in-service activity at a school. The course is being taught again and the agenda will be updated, so as it changes, updates will be placed here. 

The card game used at the beginning of the lesson was developed by Alisa Hove and Sara Healy from the University of California, Santa Barbara's Phenological Stewardshop Program.
