the Migration
Inspire students to think and act like scientists by creating journals as they follow the fall migration. Page by page, the journal becomes a workplace where students explore ever-changing events, record compelling questions, formulate hypotheses, document discoveries, and chronicle the challenges of survival and species recovery.
