Abstract

Fostering a Sense of Place at Walter Strom Middle School, 7th grade students conducted inquiry based investigations in the outdoor classroom. Data was collected several times per month throughout the school year. We filled two bird feeders with thistle seed - one in the open area and another under the forest canopy and made observations throughout the school year. We used a statistical test to decide if we thought our hypothesis or our null hypotheses was true.
