A Walk in the Park

A Walk in the Park A Walk in the Park


In this unit of study, students model how different animals in a park process information received by their senses and how they react to this information. A special emphasis is placed on the sense of sight as students develop models to understand how animals, as well as humans, see when light reflected from objects enters their eyes. Students engage in investigations to produce evidence that internal and external structures work together to support the survival, growth and reproduction of the plants within a park.
