Square of Life

Square of Life: Studies in Local and Global Environments is a collaborative project in which students investigate their local environment and share their data over the internet with other students from around the country and the world. Each group of students involved in the project will:

  • Identify living and non-living things in their school yards.
  • Share their findings with other participating classes.
  • Compare and contrast their data with data collected by other groups.
  • Summarize their findings in a final report or presentation.
  • Although Square of Life is recommended for elementary school students, anyone who is interested may participate in the program. The Fall 2003 session has just ended, but keep an eye on the Project Information page if you are interested in registering your classroom for the Spring 2004 session.
