Testing the Waters

Take your class to the nearest local lake, creek, or pond to assess the quality of the water, both biologically and chemically. Instructions are provided for how to collect invertebrate samples, but you will need to familiarize yourself with equipment and methods of chemical testing. This classic field study provides learners with experience processing real-world data.

Carolyn M.
As a first year teacher Lesson Planet was an incrediable help. I could see what other teachers had done to give me ideas. The time guidelines, materials needed and resource information gave me guidance in structuring my own plans. Many of the plans are well laid out and were very usable, which was a great time saver.
