Gorongosa Interactive Timeline
Amanda Briody describes two BioInteractive resources focused on Gorongosa National Park in Mozambique. She uses the short film The Guide to introduce students to the park and its scientists. The Gorongosa Interactive Timeline then allows her to ask data-based questions on the park's history and ecology, and to have her students make evidence-based claims.
Scott Sowell describes how he uses the coral bleaching animation and activity to teach his ecology students about the effects of global warming, while also integrating math and graphing skills into his lesson.
David Hong describes how he uses the short film The Guide with his AP® Environmental Science students to introduce the topic of conservation biology and challenges faced by nature reserves, such as Gorongosa National Park.
