There's nothing greater than collecting data!
the world of plants through observation and scientific research. Study
habitats, photosynthesis, germination and much more through step-by-step
experiments, and contribute to the scientific community by sharing your
collected data as a citizen scientist.
Citizen Scientist presents and extends key curriculum topics
through data collection tasks and simple research projects, some of
which form part of larger public surveys in the US and the UK. Readers
will be guided on how to present their findings using graphs and other
infographic devices. This series will also draw links between these
projects and the wider environmental and scientific context, inspiring
readers to engage with their local area and make positive changes. This
series is the perfect introduction to scientific investigation for KS2
students aged 9+.
