Community science is a fun and worthwhile way to learn that also provides important information for scientists all over the world! They rely on us to make observations, and we do not have to be scientists or even to know what we’re looking at! You simply take a photo of a plant, insect, bird, mammal… and upload it onto the website for experts to identify–all while practicing safe physical distancing.

Never Home Alone – The Wild Life of Homes

“Every observation can contribute to biodiversity science, from the rarest butterfly to the most common backyard weed. We share your findings with scientific data repositories like the Global Biodiversity Information Facility to help scientists find and use your data. All you have to do is observe.”

The Very Hungry Caterpillar and the Butterfly Life Cycle

At this National Geographic site, young children can listen to a reading of Eric Carle’s The very Hungry Caterpillar, and then watch a video of an emerging Monarch Butterfly. The site provides an optional pdf life cycle diagram for them to fill out, and instructions for creating their own picture-book. (Please make sure you read the terms of service.)
