Animals Between the Sand Grains -- Meiofauna

Learners begin the lesson by collecting sand at low tide from a local beach. They place each specimen on trays with a tiny amount of seawater. After a week, they can observe the meiofauna present in the sand through a microscope. They complete drawings and a comparison to end the lesson.
