What Would A Woodlouse Prefer?


Woodlice, also known as roly-polys or pill bugs, are small crustaceans, not insects. Students will explore what type of environment the woodlice prefer. The lesson highlights how experiments can be adapted to better answer the scientific question at hand.

Each Data Nugget comes with three student versions, based on the type of graphing skills required. Type A activities provide the graph for the students (allowing a focus on graph interpretation, making claims based on evidence, and explaining reasoning), Type B activities provide axis labels but requires students to graph the data, and Type C provides an unlabeled grid on which to draw a graph.
