Can Coffee be Good for You?

Are one or more cups of coffee a day actually bad for you? Or, does is actually help you? There have been many studies on the effects of coffee and while the results previously proved rather negative, recent studies have been proving contrary. This is not to negate the idea that coffee can have harmful effects for certain people but it is important to study and analyze the new findings within the science world concerning this topic.

Science was all about structure.

But what is "right" anyway?

DVFS - 7th Grade Watershed Study

 

Digital Photos of Macroinvertebrates sampled by Delaware Valley Friends School seventh grade science class on September 28, 2008 from Rhoads Pond and Mill Creek, Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania.

 

Ongoing Research:

Students should research one organism below (it may or may not be the one you photographed yourself).  In the blog section below, post information on the life cycle of your organism and identify with the name given next to the photograph.  In addition to life cycle facts, you may report on eating habits, prefered habitat, and unique or interesting behaviors.
