Biology, La Porte High School, 9 – 12th Grades

This grant funding will provide supplies to provide the observational environment for this program. Students often read or watch videos about their subjects, but this project will allow a hands-on experience with their subject (the rat) which provides a tangible aspect to their learning. This project will span multiple learning units including experimenting & observing rat behavior, learning about rat anatomy, understanding the ecology of this successful invasive species, understanding genetics through study of their offspring and comparing rats to other vertebrate animals.
