Science Bulletins Snapshots are updated weekly and are a good way to introduce your students to the dynamic nature of the natural world and of science. Students can view the snapshot as a class or in small groups. Use the following questions to guide a discussion.

  • What did this snapshot report?
  • Where did this occur?
  • What do you know about this topic?
  • What change or event is shown in the snapshot?
  • How might this change or event affect the environment and/or people?
  • What might be the local, national, or global consequences of this event?
  • How does this story illustrate The Scientific Process?
