For this challenge, I want you to practice your observation skills.
Go visit one of the online webcams linked in the document below. View the animal(s) through the camera of your choice. Please watch for between 5 and 10 minutes.
Answer the "question" in your Google Classroom by telling me WHICH webcam/animal, WHAT were they doing, and one interesting thing you noticed. (Remember, that is THREE things to actually answer!)
So: what do you want to observe? Here are some links to help you find something great to watch:
- A collection of animal webcams https://sportsmansparadiseonline.com/
- Bella the Hummingbird, some zoo cams, lots of wildlife and fish cams
- The Decorah Eagles (with links to other raptor webcams) https://www.raptorresource.org/birdcams/decorah-eagles/
- Goes to Decorah eagles, but in the Watch Birds tab has links to other raptors you can watch - falcons, eagles, kestrals, etc.
- Monterey Bay Aquarium webcams https://www.montereybayaquarium.org/animals/live-cams
- multiple cameras: aviary, kelp forest, coral reef, jelly cam, moon jellies, sea otter cam, Monterey Bay, open sea, penguins, and shark cam.
- Cornell University bird webcams https://www.allaboutbirds.org/cams/all-cams/
- Petrals, ospreys, feeders, albatros, red tailed hawks are all on right now
OPTIONAL: You can ALSO put your observation on a Padlet! There is a second Padlet just for the Decorah Eagles. That way, everyone can collect data about that webcam animals. You can read what other people have noticed. Sharing information is how scientists can collect more data and learn more than they might have by themselves. (Try a screen shot and add that! Ask a question about somebody else's Padlet observation!)
