Reviewer Comments:

This is an external link to a interesting PBS activity in which children survey family and community members on their attitude towards and misconceptions in science. The materials are provided and the instructions are clear. The CRT questions the appropriateness of the Education Level as it is labeled K - 12, and this activity appears best suited from middle school and older students.
