Are Green Crabs Invasive?

Green crabs are invasive and bad. Green crabs are overpopulated and they overpopulate other crabs. On October 23 2017 my class went to Reid state Park to collect green crab data and why their invasive. We went to Reid State Park and we caught and released green crabs, and while we had them we measured from the last spine to last spine on each side. These three pie charts show how many male and females we caught at Reid State Park. Two of the pie charts have more males than females but the last one at Fort Popham show more females than males. We noticed that the green crabs don’t die as easily. Also there are a lot more males than females that we caught.

After reviewing your submission, we do not recommend publication at this time because....

You said your date was 12.19.20 and you didn't use a very good variety of descriptive words.

You did a great job explaining your claims with evidence and walking me through all of the steps!

Lastly, you should revise and make sure what you say is accurate when you explain your graph.

After reading your article we do not recommend submitting it at this time.

We enjoyed the article and you covered everything that happened, but the conclusion claim doesn't make sense. "My claim is green crabs."

While your pie charts are easy to understand, two out of three of them don't match the conclusion.
You probably just need to change around the sentence and it will be fine.

You did very well, but the date was 12/19/20 which can be fixed easily.
