This activity utilizes the jigsaw collaborative learning technique where students split into one of four Expert groups based on their specific case study (cultivars, pesticide resistance, impacts of fertilizer, and predator-prey relationships). Each case study has a few paragraphs of text taken from primary literature and a data analysis section, which includes graph interpretation. Students become “experts” on their topic before mixing in groups with other students in their Jigsaw group. Students teach each other the information learned in the Expert groups followed by working collaboratively to answer discussion questions that tie the case studies together.
