Scientist Role Models

In this activity, students find a scientist with whom they can relate in some way and then explore and reflect upon the impact of that scientist’s work.

Lizards in Hurricanes

This activity explores images of anole lizards subjected to strong winds, which serve as phenomena for learning about natural selection and the impacts of extreme climate events.

Lizards in the Cold

This activity guides the analysis of a published scientific figure from a study that investigated how anole lizards may adapt to extremely cold temperatures.

White-Nose Syndrome in Bat Populations

This activity guides the analysis of a published scientific figure from a study that modeled the impact of an infectious fungal disease on a bat population.

New Laetoli Footprints and Hominin Body Size

This activity guides the analysis of a published scientific figure from a study that used footprints formed millions of years ago to estimate the heights of early human ancestors.

Living Together

This activity explores images of the bobtail squid, which serve as phenomena for learning about symbiosis and interspecies interactions.

Vertebrate Declines and the Sixth Mass Extinction

This activity guides the analysis of a published scientific figure from a study that measured species population declines on a global scale. These declines may be a part of Earth’s next mass extinction.

Snail Fronts and Salt Marsh Die-Offs

This activity guides the analysis of a published scientific figure from a study that investigated whether periwinkle snails contribute to salt marsh die-offs.

Dating Corn Domestication Using Carbon Isotopes

This activity guides the analysis of a published scientific figure from a study on prehistoric human food sources. In this study, scientists used carbon isotopes to determine how the advent of agriculture affected human diets.
