Middle School Intro to Phenology Presentation and Great Class Questions!

This 45-minute presentation is useful for introducing the topic of phenology to a middle school classroom, in conjunction with starting a long-term monitoring project for the school. The teacher assigned the students, as homework, an activity (similar to this KWL exercise) to review the website before coming to class.  When in class, the teacher compiled the list of questions the students generated after reviewing the content.

Southeast Arizona experiences unique changes throughout the seasons.  What are your favorite seasonal hallmarks; hummingbirds at your backyard feeder in winter, Mexican free-tailed bats emerging from bridges on summer evenings, Monsoon wildflowers?  Have you noticed how these events change with local weather and annual climate?  Join us for a conversation about observing birds, insects, plants, and other animals in the Sonoran Desert and Sky Islands throughout our changing seasons.
