Ecological Field Studies Materials

Ecological Field Studies Materials help teachers and students to learn ecological concepts and field study skills in the context their local environment. Materials include 40 ecological field study activities illustrated with videos of students and teachers conducting ecological research at "Ecosystem" Field Studies Center, northeast of Moscow, Russia.

Each field study has a 5-9 minute video featuring real students conducting the ecological field techniques in nature. Each video illustrates the primary instructional outcomes and the major steps in accomplishing the task including reporting the results. Accompanying teacher materials (7-20 pages of text for each lesson) include background ecological concepts, specific details about the field study techniques, approaches to analysis of the data collected and suggestions for conducting the field study with students.

The 40 ecological field study lessons cover a wide variety of activities focusing on aquatic ecology, botany, forest ecology, soil studies, landscape analysis, mammal studies, ornithology and human effects on nature. The lessons are divided into appropriate seasons with 10 lessons for each season of the year. Ecological field studies begin with basic skills in Autumn, proceed through Winter and Spring with appropriate seasonal activities and culminate in advanced studies in Summer. The lessons are based on five main themes: landscape, botany, zoology, water ecology and environmental monitoring. Links to descriptions of the seasonal field studies are found at the top of this page. Click on the seasonal buttons and then select specific lessons to preview.

Ecological field studies promote a wide variety of student outcomes that correspond to established science education standards in many countries. These include content standards in the areas of earth science, life science, biology, ecology, science process skills and the nature of science. Intellectual skill development includes questioning, data collection, analysis and drawing conclusions. Affective outcomes include an appreciation for the processes of science and positive values related to natural, scientific and cultural systems.
