Field Studies: Animal behavior
Students practice the skills of a scientist by working closely with the Bronx Zoo and Urban Advantage during their Field Investigations. Groups of students create, plan and execute a scientific investigation in which they study the behavior of a species or between two different species. They not only have a chance to practice their developing investigatory skills, but they also have a chance to extend their understanding of evolution and adaptations that is studied during one of the year's units.
