Featured in PASCO’s Biology through Inquiry Teacher Guide
Features 25 inquiry based labs covering the fundamental concepts of cell biology, ecology and physiology.
Microclimates: Exploring Temp
In this activity, students explore local microclimates by measuring weather data around the school.
- Measure weather conditions at different locations using a weather sensor, and compare with current weather conditions in the area.
- Determine the impact that a location's environmental conditions have on the microclimate of a given area.
Students will gain experience conducting the following procedures:
- Measuring the temperature of various microclimates around their school ground.
- Comparing weather data and drawing conclusions concerning factors that may affect microclimates.
Sensors / Equipment Used:
Durable stainless steel temperature sensor with a wide measurable range. For use with PASPORT Interfaces.
The Associated Bundle:
The Biology Standard Sensor Bundle includes a photosynthesis tank and the sensors required to perform 19 of the 24 Lab Activities in the Biology through Inquiry manual.
