Animals Between the Sand Grains -- Meiofauna

Students 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.

Lesson Planet has made giving my English lessons so much easier. I can go on Lesson Planet and prepare lessons for my Japanese students with ease and save my lessons for future use. I am new to Lesson Planet, but have found it to be very useful.
