This activity builds on information presented in the video Selection for Tuskless Elephants. Students use scientific evidence and reasoning to construct an explanation of and develop an argument for tusklessness in elephant populations.
This activity analyzes a published scientific figure from a study in Serengeti National Park, Tanzania. In this study, scientists investigated how the eradication of rinderpest disease led to a boom in the wildebeest population.
This activity explores the content presented in the animated video Nature’s Cutest Symbiosis: The Bobtail Squid, which describes how the light produced by bacteria living inside bobtail squid helps the squid avoid its predators.
This activity supports using the citizen science platform WildCam Gorongosa in the classroom. It engages students in calculating species richness, evenness, and the Shannon diversity index for various habitat types using data from trail cameras in Gorongosa National Park.
In this activity, students will be guided through making observations using trail camera data collected in Gorongosa National Park, developing and investigating a scientifically testable research question, and analyzing their results.
