Plankton

This Plankton lesson plan also includes:

Plankton: so much more than just a SpongeBob character. Three different activities have kids looking at both phytoplankton and zooplankton in pictures, as well as collecting their own samples (depending on your access to a saltwater system) and examining them under a microscope, then creating and testing plankton models. At the end of each lesson plan, your mini microbiologists discuss and analyze what they've learned.
