The Garden Classroom: Bug Census

In this activity, based upon the Bug Census activity outlined in The Garden Classroom,  students survey specific areas in the school garden or other outdoor areas. Groups of students record and count the insect biodiversity in the area and then report their findings back to the class.

 

The class is challenged to use their data to generate tally charts, bar graphs, and a tableau illustrating where various types of insects were found.
