In this unit, students will learn basic criteria used to investigate invertebrates in coastal streams. Students will discuss water quality and how invertebrates are key indicators of water quality. Students will while also, measure temperature, turbidity, and ph using scientific equipment (Lab Quest probes). Students will work in small groups to collect data and will record their information on a class data sheet. This is a small unit to be carried out over the course of the year (fall, winter, spring, and summer). The overall goal of this unit is to compare data collected from the four different seasons, interpret data and make observations based on their findings.
