Biodiversity of Ponds

Students study the biodiversity in pond water. In this biodiversity lesson plan, students observe 3 samples of pond water using a pond water identification sheet. They record their findings and identify the organisms they find, the number of each type of organism and any other information about the organisms. They prepare a report about the biodiversity of each type of pond observed.

I would truly be lost without Lesson Planet! Although I have been in the classroom for over 25 years, I am very challenged by the need to obtain English-language student materials here in Estonia where I am the International Teacher for an Estonian public school. These materials are excellent, and well suited to ELL/ESL students. Especially, I can find both primary materials AND more sophisticated lessons - Math here, for instance, is quite advanced and I use materials from upper grades in addition to elementary math materials. Thank Goodness for Lesson Planet!|
