In this performance task, students will use LabQuest Probes to measure the temperature and oxygen level of three different water habitats. Students will then, write down any observations and make a drawing of each different water habitat. Students will also create a graph using data collected from the various water sites. Finally, students will discuss their findings and draw conclusions about the importance of water to ecosystems.
Note: Prior to this lesson, students should know how to create a graph, compare data between habitats, write observations, draw on-site, use LabQuest probes, and how to manage a scientific journal.
