Below, we provide links to some of the educational resources that have been developed through our collaboration with Project Budburst and the Education and Public Engagement team of the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON). These are targeted at a K-12 audience but are most appropriate for grades 5 through 9. The lesson plans leverage data exploration and visualization tools that are available on the PhenoCam web page, and engage students in creative exploration of PhenoCam data.
There are numerous other educational resources related to phenology that are available online. These include:
- NEON Education maintains a web page containing links to tutorials focused on phenology and the data skills needed to ask phenology-related questions.
- The Harvard Forest Schoolyard LTER program maintains an extensive set of phenologically-related lesson plans and associated materials for K-12 education.
- Nature’s Notebook, a program of the USA-National Phenology Network, has a large number of educational resources for both K-12 and higher education audiences.
