The class, as a whole, decides on a set of data
that they feel best represents their local schoolyard environment
and submits it to the online project database. The database
can then be accessed by the other participanting classrooms and
students. Check out the data collection form that has
been especially designed for use by young students...
Students can enter in the class data on their own, in groups
or with the teacher.
The online database has been designed to allow students to enter
in data in both graphical as well as text formats. The
"screenshot" above shows the online submission form that
students use to enter in their data. They can select icons
to represent what was found in their square and then enter in text
to describe in more detail what was found.
