Nab the Aquatic Invader

GLIN Site of the Month Nab the Aquatic Invader is an exciting education technology venture that uses problem-based activities to teach students in grades 4-10 about invasive species. An engaging detective theme raises awareness of the critical nature of problems caused by invaders and inspires a desire to take action. As honorary detectives, students are provided with opportunities for critical thinking and scientific inquiry. Students conduct research with the help of fact sheets, photos, web links, curriculum, education kits, maps and more. Educators have an opportunity to enhance existing units; use activities created by teachers; and work with technology that integrates science, geography, math and language arts. The site provides a stimulating online educational experience.
