Explore the Vital Signs Crab Dataset

Students will explore Vital Signs crab data from 2003 to 2017 to investigate changing populations of native and invasive crabs over time and space. Use part I to get accustomed to the online tools, part 2 to practice using the data to answer questions, and part 3 to engage with the question "How do the populations of green crabs, Asian share crabs, and native crabs compare up and down the coast of New England?"
