An Introduction to the Animal Diversity Web and Quaardvark
This activity was designed by Dr. Matthew Wund, The College of New Jersey, to familiarize students with the information available on the ADW, and with the Quaardvark interface. After briefly demonstrating both websites to the class, I let them explore the ADW for 30 minutes. Following that exercise, we ran a few basic queries together and then they designed and implemented basic queries on their own. The activity successfully laid the foundation for a more in depth, student-driven activity later in the semester.
