GIS in Classroom - 5th grade

"GIS can be used to understand patterns, linkages, relationships, movement, regions, location, and place, from human systems to physical systems to human-environment interaction. GIS can be used for studying issues at the local level to the regional, national, or global scale." Dr. Joseph Kerski, ESRI

Students will use a map and data loaded to ArcGIS Online to discover the relationships between species in the swamp and to infer the habitat preferences of the Prothonotary Warbler based on breeding territory data collected at the Audubon Center at Francis Beidler Forest.
