Students will practice constructing claims using evidence and reasoning.
Scientists are interested in learning how the vegetation (collection of plants) of an area can be used to study Earth's climate.
Students analyze historic plant growth data (i.e., peak bloom dates) of Washington, D.C.’s famous cherry blossom trees, as well as atmospheric near surface temperatures as evidence for explaining the phenomena of earlier peak blooms in our nation’s capital.
