Beneath the Surface: Ecosystem of a Pond
This two-part hands-on class will delve into the functions of an ecosystem in nature, specifically focusing on a freshwater pond ecosystem. Students will set-up a project in the first class, as well as learn what goes on beneath the pond surface and who lives there. The following week, they will learn formal microscopy techniques, such as how to use a compound microscope and make a wet mount, in order to complete the activity and view pond cultures.
