In this performance task, students will investigate factors that affect invertebrate life in coastal streams. Students will use LabQuest probes to perform the following tasks:
- Measure temperature
- Measure PH level
- Measure Oxygen level
- Measure salinity
Students will record data collected in a graph or spreadsheets. Students will then compare the effects of the above variables to the amount of invertebrate found in each different parts of the stream and draw conclusions based on their findings.
