Measuring Pots (Archaeology)
Because ancient pots are usually found broken into hundreds of pieces (sherds), archaeologists find it tedious and often impossible to glue them back together. One way they get an idea of how large a pot was is by calculating its original circumference. Rim sherds are used to do this because they often indicate how large the vessel opening was.

Seasonal Migrations: Bald Eagle
Students join a biologist who uses satellite telemetry to track bald eagles back to their nests in Canada. They participate in an online contest and predict the location of each eagle's nest.

1 1 Aim
There is increasing recognition that the reductionist mindset that is currently dominating society, rooted in unlimited economic growth unperceptive to its social and environmental impact, cannot resolve the converging environmental, social and economic crises we now face. The primary aim of this unit is to encourage the shift away from reductionist and human centred thinking towards a holistic and ecological worldview.
