Students in my college Life Science course for prospective K6 teachers performed
MUCH BETTER investigations using the scaffolds provided by the BioKids
curriculum on a field trip to our Arboretum than they did using guidelines from
our Ocean Institute on a field trip to the rocky intertidal in southern
California. It would be wonderful if projects like BioKids were to be
developed for investigations about different kinds of characteristics of diverse
ecosystems.

Technical Remarks:

Some of the page numbering on the Invertebrate ID Guide does not match the items
described in the key. Surprisingly, my college students were so enthusiastic
that they were not discouraged and they quickly fixed the page numbers.
