DATA NUGGETS is a science project that provides free classroom activities that combine contemporary research and authentic data.
Available for all grade levels, users can search for a data nugget, make a data nugget, or explore educator and scientist resources.
Users can search for topics by keyword, title, level, or location. Each topic includes a teacher’s guide, student activities, and a grading rubric. Many of the science projects include videos, images, and resources for further reading.
Librarians will find this to be a useful website in promoting citizen science. Think about how data nugget projects could be woven into an activity center or whole-school thematic unit.
