Prairie potholes are dips in the earth that contain water, which is vital to the survival of many prairie inhabitants, including the Mallard Duck. Middle schoolers analyze data on the disappearance of these potholes in relation to the mallard duck population. They are given several passages to read as well as several data tables that show changes to potholes, prairie lands, and duck breeding activity. They will create graphs that show each data table and then discuss the relationships they see through data analysis.
