Phenology is the study of the timing of the biological events in plants and animals such as flowering, leafing, hibernation, reproduction, and migration. Scientists who study phenology are interested in the timing of such biological events in relation to changes in season and climate. In this session, you’ll learn all about plant phenology through Project Budburst

 

The Citizen Science Homeschool Series for 2018-19 is open to students in grades K-5. Every month, students will learn about a different citizen science project, the issues surrounding the project and how they can get involved. In addition to learning about current issues in science, students will learn and practice observation, recording and communication skills.
