Gathering Data

Scientists rely on carefully gathered data to help answer their questions, test their hypotheses, and develop and justify explanations. They also critically review one another's data and collection procedures so they can assess whether the research is fair and valid or replicate the study.

Because Journey North is a data-driven project, your students will need to practice gathering accurate and useful information. When students decide how to gather and represent their own and online migration data, they will find patterns more readily revealed and conclusions and explanations easier to draw.
