Further, the expanded choice of labs allows each teacher to select activities that are tailored to the specific needs and circumstances of his, or her, class.

These labs are grouped by catagories that can be used in conjunction with any introductory environmental textbook. All lab activities have been field tested over the past 6 years, and are easy do within a 2 hour lab. Students, regardless of their science background, will benefit from the variety of laboratory activities offered. Relevence sections for each lab have been included to help the student see that he, or she, is doing more than "just counting trees." The instructions for each lab have been clarified and all sections shortened and updated. Finally, the students themselves have had extensive input on how to best improve the lab activities, ensuring that the voices of those most impacted by the manual are also heard.
