Healthy habitat = clean air, clean water, climate regulation, and all of the things we humans depend on from our ecosystems
What role do predators play in shaping prey populations?
Truly, what does it mean to be alive?
more than utilizing energy, responding, and changing
|Our narrator takes the stage|
|Just what do we find when we look in healthy water? Lots of different kinds of organisms|
|Using probes to measure temperature and conductivity gives us a bit more insight into the quality of the water|
|Students spend time learning about the plants that line the edge of the SRE puddle|
|... those tiny creatures draw in everyone for a closer look|
|Active stations in action: plants, aquatic critters, mud. It's all worth exploring|
|Everyone's learning something. That gives MsLevy something to smile about|
|Tiny critters are much easier to see when they're in small jars|
|Our tech-team, working out ways to share our physical data with the 2nd graders|
|Hmm, if you're the mosquito, then there's always going to be someone in a healthy habitat who will make lunch of you!|
|Scooping, sorting, comparing to prepared samples, estimating ... some great math skills in evidence here|
|Mr. Clark gives this group a close up view of a dragonfly larva|
|What would it be like to get into those great, big waders? Fun!!|
|Scientists, observers, artists|
|Looks like we've got our next ecological explorer ready to go|
|Data can still be stylish!|
