Wildlife Webcams and Observations - Week 4 Challenge

Hi, Scientists!  (Have I told you how much I MISS you and getting to hear your great thoughts in PERSON??)

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.

Or - observe wild animals in your own yard, your neighborhood, or on a hike!  
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:

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!)
