    1. NH Science Teachers’ Association Fall Conference, 2013 Sarah Thorne Prospect Mt. High School

    2. Moose Power Based on Research Experience for Teachers Hubbard Brook Research Foundation Summer, 2011

    3. Four Lessons for High School Biology or Environmental Science Classes 1) Investigate moose nutrition and energy requirements (indoors) 2) Mimic moose browsing behavior (outdoors) 3) Collect data re: impact of browsing on shrub structure (outdoors) 4) Analyze data re: impact of shrub structure on bird nest siting (indoors)

    4. 5 periods of 45-50 minutes Activity one is introductory to the other lessons Activities 2-4 can be stand-alone Time needed

    5. Resources • Web links and references are provided to resources needed for the lessons.

    6. Teacher notes, student data sheets and answer keys provided

    7. Activity Two: Browse Like a Moose Investigating Moose Diet: How does our largest vegetarian survive?

    8. Activity 2: Browse Like a Moose Moose Energy and Survival Facts Ave. twig diameter _____mm Ave. twig mass _____ g Wet matter intake is _____ kg per day # of hours browsing per day ____ # kg wet matter browsed per hour ____ # grams wet matter browsed per hour ____ # grams per minute_____ # twigs per minute ____ This is how fast you will need to browse!

    9. Activity Two Outdoors: Browse Like a Moose Each student will have a specific role and contribute data to the group’s data sheet. Conduct browse experiment for 20 minutes. Materials: Winter twig identification chart (advanced students) Measuring pole showing range of browsing height Clip boards and data sheets Ruler or calipers Hand Clippers Stomach bag Watch Scale (indoors)

    10. Back indoors • Weigh stomach bag • Calculate browse rate: • ____ g/20 min • ____ g/hour • ____ kg/hour If a moose needs 20kg/day, how many hours will your moose need to browse? _____ hours

    11. Are you a survivor?
