Phenology is the study of cyclic and seasonal events in the lives of plants and animals and how those events are influenced by climate. This activity investigates the phenology of mosquitoes.
Precipitation impacts mosquito populations, and one way to measure precipitation is from satellites, including some of NASA's more than two dozen Earth-observing satellites. This activity will show you how to access NASA precipitation data for your specific location.
This guided exploration notebook introduces learners to using scientific notebooks to make observations and ask questions, while also incorporating information and activities that build relevant background knowledge, confidence in independent learning and research, and engagement in science. At the website link, you can download PDF versions of the notebook in full color or black and white, as well as a companion guide for parents and facilitators.
Gain familiarity with the variety of container mosquito habitats, hideouts, and life cycle stages with these games! Mosquito Habitats and Hideouts can be played three different ways: Bingo, Name That Habitat, or Sketch That Habitat.
An activity to teach how mosquitoes use their proboscis to bite, including a diagram, video, and poem. This is one of the activities from the Mission Mosquito Science Notebook.
Observation Stations are typically 2' concrete stickers, from which citizen scientists can take observations using the GLOBE Observer app. Observing from a station provides additional information that allows our team to study things like change over time or the accuracy of the app. Download the template file and check out the Facilitator's Guide for guidance on customizing and placing your stations.
