  Basic Science Student Investigating Curricula Index

WOW lessons use the aquatic environment and real lake data to explore basic science concepts. Most lessons appear in two different forms: a "Studying" lesson and an "Investigating" (list below) lesson. "Studying" lessons allow you to apply and learn concepts through direct, guided experiences. "Investigating" lessons provide opportunities to discover the same concepts and involve more problem-solving.

Each lesson is organized into a thinking framework of six sequential parts that are critical for improving scientific and technological literacy: knowledge base, experimental design, data collection, data management and analysis, interpretation of results, and reporting results. As you practice this framework of scientific thinking you will be modeling the practices of scientists. Choose the lesson you want to complete below:
