|The team at BSCS Science Learning created a set of FieldScope-based lessons that anyone can freely access. These lessons, called Invitations to Inquiry with FieldScope, support teachers as they help their middle and high school students work with large data sets generated through participatory science projects. With these inquiries, students can use FieldScope’s advanced mapping and graphing tools to explore real data in the context of meaningful science classroom lessons. Access the full set of lessons from the BSCS Educator Resources section. Or, you may directly access the individual lessons at the links below:|
