Fun Science Fair Projects! $12.95. botany 49 Science Fair Projects. Grades 37. Janice VanCleave. 1991. 215pages. Provides simple problems and activities to teach about measurement http://www.accessexcellence.org/RC/CT/fun_science_fair_projects.html
Extractions: Janice VanCleave The title of this article is viewed by some people as a contradiction of terms. Too often science fair projects are dreaded by teachers, librarians, and parents, as well as by the students. This is an unfortunate situation usually resulting from a lack of instructional materials to allow students, with a minimum of assistance depending on their age, to develop the project themselves. Science is a search for answers. Science projects are good ways to learn more about science as students search for answers to specific problems. Instructional materials are needed to give guidance and provide ideas, but students must do their part in the search by planning experiments, finding and recording information related to the problem, and organizing the collected data to find an answer. Presenting the project at a science fair can be a rewarding experience if the exhibit has been properly prepared. Trying to assemble a project overnight, however, only results in frustration and a poor grade. The student is also cheated out of the fun of being a science detective. Solving a scientific mystery, like solving a detective mystery, requires planning and the careful collecting of data. Students should be encouraged to start their projects with curiosity and a desire to learn something new. The following sections provide suggestions of how students can get started on this scientific quest. I divide a sample project into its parts and provide a format that can be used to guide students through other projects, regardless of the topic.

Extractions: Teachers Academy Links Participants in the Teachers Academy were asked to select links that they found useful for plant units in their K-8 schools. In addition to selecting the links the teachers had to write a brief description of the site with clues as to the ways the site might be used by teachers and/or their students. Some sites are listed under more than one category if they have multiple resource types.

Extractions: I teach two graduate courses, Population Ecology and Population Analysis . Population Ecology is team-taught with Dr. Kirk Moloney of Botany and it covers basic theory of population dynamics including growth models, predation, competition, and population projection. Population Analysis covers statistical and analytical techniques for estimating parameters of biological populations, and is frequently taken by students from Entomology Statistics , and Zoology/Genetics . I also teach an undergraduate course called Ecological Methods which includes elements of statistical design, population sampling and estimation, field sampling of vegetation, and mapping habitat using geographic information systems. I have been instrumental in developing computing facilities for students in biological sciences at Iowa State University. Back to Home Research Activities Teaching Activities

BOTANY At Lane Community College Pisgah Arboretum Wildflower Festival is one of the many activities studentstake part in as part of the spring botany courses. Offered FALL Quarter. http://teach.lanecc.edu/bakerg/Botany.htm
Extractions: BOTANY at Lane Community College Just curious about plants or Thinking about a career that includes Botany? The Science Division at Lane Community College offers a variety of BOTANY COURSES that appeal to many different interests. These courses are a gateway to connecting you with the vast array of Botanical opportunities in our area. Students taking these courses are introduced to Mt. Pisgah Arboretum, activities of the Native Plant Society of Oregon and kept informed about scholarships and job opportunities for botany students. Participation in the set-up of the annual Mt. Pisgah Arboretum Wildflower Festival is one of the many activities students take part in as part of the spring botany courses. Offered FALL Quarter Bi 201:Cellular Foundations has replaced the original Bot 201 course This foundational course is the beginning for the yearlong botany majors sequence offered at LCC. It includes the study of the molecular basis of life, cell structures and functions, energy flow in biological systems and genetics. Labs and readings are designed to have students study and participate in the process of scientific investigation.
Selected Publications My current activities at LCC focus on offering students a and opportunities in courses,especially botany related ones the 6 different courses I teach each year http://teach.lanecc.edu/bakerg/Interests.htm
Extractions: Gail A. Baker Teaching and Research Interests In the fall of 1994 I began teaching full-time in the Science Division at Lane Community College (LCC). This marked a significant transition for me from a research to a teaching career. Before joining the faculty at LCC I had a 15-year career as a research scientist at three major universities, University of California Irvine and Los Angeles and Oregon State University. My research background in the field of plant ecology has given me a strong foundation of information and experience to bring to the classroom and share with students. The research projects I have been involved with range from the deserts of Baja and southern California to the chaparral and giant sequoias of the southern Sierra and up the west coast of the United States to the temperate rain forests of the Olympic peninsula in Washington. I knew I would like to make the transition from research to teaching when I taught part-time at LCC in 1986 and continued to teach at North Seattle Community College during 6 years in the Seattle area. The opportunity to work with motivated students in small classes was very inspiring.
Camp Mondamin, Employment Information We teach fairly highlevel skills (ie NATURE PROGRAM - Throughout all our activities,we employ a in environmental sciences, including botany, geology, animal http://www.mondamin.com/employment/instruction.htm
Extractions: Most of our staff have two primary roles at camp, that of an activity instructor and that of a cabin counselor. Both jobs are lots of fun, and you'll definitely appreciate the variety. A few of our more experienced staff will spend so much time in the woods that they will not have a cabin, but they still act as counselors when they're not teaching, helping to fill in the gaps. In your role as an activity instructor, you'll be a part of a team led by an Activity Head who will coordinate schedules and teaching methods . Simply being able to swim does not qualify you to teach swimming; having had a horse does not qualify you to teach riding. A good teacher needs a thorough understanding of the fundamentals and a method for communicating them. If, however, you do possess a basic skill, we can teach you to teach. We use activities as a means of communication, as a tool for stimulating growth

Extractions: The development of skills in camp activities is an important aspect of our program. Under the guidance of counselors and specialist instructors, campers have the opportunity to participate in many of the activities listed below. Each camper has a personally chosen schedule and may choose a class/activity as a Major , which meets every day, or a Minor , which meets every other day. Prior to making their selection of activities, campers take part in an Activity Fair , where they will tour the class area, and meet with the instructor. ARCHERY - Campers of all ages may participate to earn medals and pins through the Camp Archery Association program, shooting at standard targets from twenty to fifty yards in distance. - This versatile program offers leatherwork, tile work, painting, enameling, stick craft, beadwork and weaving. â Our baseball field is ideal for teaching the skills of base running, hitting, bunting, throwing and catching. Campers also partake in innovative games, scrimmages, and inter-camp competition . As an added feature, we have recently completed a spacious dugout.

Educators selected for participation in the TEACH program will gain first-hand exposure and experience in agricultural scientific research on an expedition to an overseas destination. Teachers will use this international field experience to incorporate the teaching of agricultural science, tied to NYS standards, as well as agricultural careers and global studies in their individual classrooms and throughout NY Public Schools. In addition to the international scientific expeditions, participants will engage in pre-trip preparation and extended follow-up activities.
