I have adapted a curriculum (created by the Pennsylvania Department of Education Office of Environment & Ecology) for use with a single student. The unit we are about to begin is called “Adopt-a-Forest,” and the objectives are as follows:
Students will (1) select an area of forest and develop a scientific methodology to study it, (2) learn about the ecological relationships in their adopted forest, and (3) explore the biological and structural diversity in their forest.
We have selected a conservation trail (1.4 miles) found within a larger wildlife management area (managed by the PA Game Commission) located in our county. I would like to create an iNat Project to collect our observations…but, I am uncertain how to proceed so it meets our needs.
I am qualified to create a Place on iNat - so, will I use the polygon border tool to create a Place inside an already established Place (Parent) to narrow our focus to the 1.4 mile Conservation Trail…is that correct?
Next, will I create an account for my student?
And, which type of Project shall I choose - is it a Collection, based on Place and (2) Users?
Is there anything else I should do to create this very specific Project with only two participants?
