Current eLearning Activity
Thursday, April 30, 2020
Here's another bonus eLearning activity!
This one comes to us via our friends at the Brown Planetarium at Ball State University, and it relates to the stories in two different books in the series!
Cerulean warblers and sea turtles depend on moonlight and starlight! Songbirds migrate at night using the moon and stars to navigate. Baby sea turtles find their way to the ocean when they first hatch by crawling toward reflected light from the sky.
Both of these groups of animals are harmed by light pollution. In this activity, you can be a citizen science by observing the night sky and posting your observations. The National Science Foundation sponsors this program to help provide data for scientists!
At Conservation Tales, we believe the best way
to learn science is to DO science!!!
And it's FREE!
FREE Teaching Resources for Online and Homeschool Learning!
Conservation Tales wants to help teachers and parents find quality science activities during the pandemic response! If you are homeschooling, or if you teach online, these downloads may help with your plans!
The activities can be done online, or with easy-to-find materials at home. Students practice science process skills as they learn about biology, environmental science and conservation actions.
Check this page every Tuesday and Thursday for another Conservation Tales science activity that you can download FREE for use with eLearning.
