Students will be choosing which two environments they want to test (hot/cold, dry/wet, rough/smooth, etc).
1) They will need to divide their large Petri dish into two sides and label them (Right/hot, Left/cold) or whatever options they choose. Before they change their environments, they will need to have the pill bugs move around the petri dish for 1 min trials and count the number on each side. This will give them a control to compare their data against.
2) They will need to engineer a way to make two environments inside their Petri dish (hot/cold, wet/dry...etc).
3) They will place the Pill bugs in the dish for 1 min trials and count the number on each side.
4) They should record their data in a data chart.
