12/6 and 12/7: Introduction to Research

OVERVIEW: Class on Monday and Tuesday consisted of an introduction to research techniques with our librarian, Ms. Hall-Riddle. Research questions, key search words, reputable websites, and using a variety of resources were just a few of the many topics covered.  All of this information is in preparation of our upcoming research project on invasive species.

DO THIS: Please make sure that you have written both the common name and the scientific name of your species in your agenda and have also put it on a “sticky” on your computer.(Don’t forget to double check your spelling!!!)

COMING SOON: More details on research specifics are coming as I go through your research questions brainstormed today.

ANY IDEAS??? If there are any great questions that you think I didn’t get, please submit them below. I’m always happy to have more suggestions.

    I think we should care about the fungus that us spreading to bat populations because, the bats are very crucial to an ecosystem. They kill lots of bugs, the spread seeds and they pollinate. Without them other species might start to die, and it will affect biodiversity. Once one organism dies out, eventually others, that have an impact on that one will start to die too, and on and on.
    We should also care, because these bats are going endangered. We already have enough endangered species and we don’t need anymore. I think this will be helpful though for scientists because if this fungus starts to endanger another species then they will know what to do and how to handle it. But, this fungus is new to North America, So of course scientists won’t know what to do right away, but I think it will be helpful in some way later on.
