While using this video investigation tool the student is encouraged to track
their discoveries by setting up a data table. The table for this site should
include the three main categories: residents, common visitors, and uncommon
visitors. Within each of the three categories the students should list the
individual species. From here it is the students’ responsibility to
record the observations they feel are important. This open-ended format helps
to foster a more creative scientific learning method for the student.
