Reviewer Comments:

In this combination science / service lesson, late elementary through middle school students adopt a beach along the Great Lakes shoreline, visiting it?two to five times to collect litter and other data. Students will then enter their data into an online database. This is a great opportunity for students to collect and analyze real, local data.
