2018 - Elementary GLOBE Seasons Module

Seasons Module

The hummingbirds have stopped visiting the school garden and it is up to the GLOBE Kids to figure out why. In this story, students will learn about the environment's seasonal changes and how they affect the local wildlife.

By the end of this module, students will be able to observe how the local habitat's colors shift throughout the year and how to document these shifts with a science journal. They will also be able to describe why these changes affect local hummingbird populations. 


Cover of the book “The Mystery of the Missing Hummingbirds.” Three children are outside on grass and around bushes. They are pointing and smiling as hummingbirds fly around them. Below the names of the authors is the Elementary GLOBE logo
