My Science Experiment Observations DropboxInstructions:View General Grading RubricIn this activity, you will be doing an observation project. You will set up an experiment in which you will objectively observe a species in a natural habitat for 2 hours.1. Conduct your observations over one species in a natural habitat for two hours. Note: this does not include a nature video, your home, people at the beach, classmates or relatives, or domesticated animals.Your observation is only over 1 species and not multiple species and it should be on wild species found in a natural habitat. For example, if you are observing egrets, that’s all you’re observing. You don’t also observe alligators, herons, ibises, etc.The following are approved locations for observation:BeachNature park: state or countyPond, lake or riverLocal zooLocal aquariumWhile observing, record your observations using the following guidelines:Record your observations in a Microsoft Word document (.doc, .docx), or transfer your written notes to a Microsoft Word document following your observations.All observations will be checked for originality / duplication among the group.Start each observation with a time, date and weather conditions.Record the time at 10 minute intervals throughout the observation for a total of 2 hours.Record simply what is going on in the area during your time there. Was there one individual or many of the same species? Was the species you are observing interacting with other organisms? If so, was it another organism of the same or different species? Was the species you are observing sleeping, eating, etc. Do not make any judgments in the observation.Include at least 5 pictures taken on site of the observation and the species you are observing.2. Plan your observation schedule. Your schedule may consist of two single-hour observations, or one 2 hour observation. Make sure to note time, date and weather conditions regardless of schedule.3. Read the following resources to learn about systematic observations:”What is Naturalistic Observation?” article by Kendry Cherry”Outdoor Action Guide to Nature Observation & Stalking” article by Rick CurtisSample observations blog by the Montana Natural History CenterObservation ExamplesUpload your .doc or .docx file to this dropbox.My Science Experiment Analysis Dropbox Instructions:View General Grading RubricIn this activity, you will be reflecting upon your observation and analyzing it. You will be doing one of the steps in scientific experimentation-one in which you objectively analyze your data and attempt to find patterns in the observations.You will need to look at the observations you have made, and try and draw conclusions for what you have observed. Answer the following questions using a minimum word count of at least 500 words total. Email your Professor if you have any questions.Did the species stay or leave the area in your time frame?If the species left, did it return? Why do you think it did this?Was the species alone or in a group?Did you see any patterns in how they grouped together?Can you tell if they were a mixed group (males and females, adults and juveniles) or homogeneous?What was the behavior of the species: sleeping, eating, playing, etc.Where there any juveniles or babies around? If so, what was the behavior of the organism?Once you find a pattern, discuss what you believe is the explanation, and support it with at least two sources of support. Note: this is not your opinion on their behavior, but the scientifically supported research discussing the species’ behavior as documented by others.Use APA style for your citations.Upload your .doc or .docx file to this dropbox.
