Description:

In this activity, learners start their own field journal to better understand the wildlife in their area. Learners select an animal to observe, record observations about the animal's appearance and behavior, and draw a picture of the animal. Learners also record questions they have about the animal and consider which questions they could answer if they could go to the lab and analyze the animal's DNA. This resource includes a sample journal entry that learners can use as a model.
