After all the visits to the Crystal Cove State Park, and the data collection, and the analysis, the students put it all together. Working in groups of 3 or 4, they make trifold posters that summarize their work as scientists, including the questions they asked, the tools they used, the data they collected, and the findings they came to. These posters were then shared with the public on a special night attended by parents, friends, and school leaders.
