Investigating Science Outdoors engages students in authentic explorations of a study site—a small piece of land near their school. It is a supplementary science curriculum, targeted for grades 7-9 and is appropriate for afterschool and camp programs, as well as in-school use.
The curriculum consists of two chapters. Each chapter consists of six activities, which take 1-2 class periods.
The Investigating Science Outdoors eBook was developed by TERC. It is based on a full-year curriculum, Global Lab, also developed by TERC and funded in part by a grant from the National Science Foundation.
