But as a "science person" who has taken boatloads of science courses and labs, the most memorable science task I've ever been given was a creative writing assignment in a Parasitology class in college. We had to research a chosen paras...

Coral Reef Ecosystems

Interesting and Informative
Coral Reef Ecosystems so beautiful and diverse. This SciPack was incredibly interesting and kept me engaged throughout the entire process. There's so much to learn about coral reefs, and this SciPack packed a lot of information into the small course. Anyone who is interested in coral reefs or who teaches about coral reef ecosystems would benefit from completing this SciPack. It was great!

If keeping crayfish is as easy as this article makes it seem, then I plan on implementing this in my classroom!

I really enjoyed completing this SciPack. It gave me a lot of background information that I can use to answer student questions that come up during our rock unit. I found the info on the age of rocks and Earth very interesting. I also enjoyed the analogy between the rock cycle and recycling.
