Phenology - What's Up With That?

Phenology - What Is It?

Phenology - Where Is It?

Phenology - Who Cares?

Signs of the Seasons - That's What I'm Talkin' 'bout!!!

"Phenology is the term for the study of the timing of these seasonal changes in plants and animals. The amount of sunlight, which affects day length and temperature, is the main factor driving these shifts.

When students closely observe the natural world, record data, and notice patterns as the seasons unfold, they build a deeper understanding of seasonal change!

Each season, carefully observe the seasonal changes shown on the Phenology Checklist."

Beginning on September 23, 2007, people all over the world will look up and around their outside environment and report just what they see. This information is taken from Journey North, a wonderful online learning project that kids, parents, and teachers; along with interested hobbyists can learn more about science, migrations, and related topics.
