Product Details

What is the water quality of this stream? Is it polluted? Students use a sample of illustrated macroinvertebrates to determine the Biotic Index and the water quality of a simulated natural water source. Students also use the illustrated macroinvertebrates to learn how some populations are estimated in the wild using a common technique known as mark-and-recapture. Complete with valuable Teacher Notes, reproducible student handouts and illustrated macroinvertebrates.

Super Value Kit is complete for 10 student groups. All materials are reusable.
