Life in a Pond

Grade levels: , , ,
Cost: per classroom
with classroom pre-trip: plus travel fee(s)


A pond is much more than frogs and fish! It demonstrates a beautiful web of life from algae and microscopic organisms to insect larvae and amphibians. We will use our limnology lab to practice techniques for observing small aquatic creatures and learning about their unique life cycles and adaptations. At the pond, we will collect and observe several varieties of invertebrates that depend on this habitat. This program lasts 2 1/2 hours.
