It's February!! That means that it's critter time. All NBC Watershed Explorers will be learning about freshwater macroinvertebrates and how their presence or lack of presence can tell scientists about the health of our freshwater.
Once our in-class lesson is complete, Watershed Explorers will research either leeches, snails, crayfish, caddisflies, or dragonflies. This research will be used to create a poster that will be shared during in-class presentations in April. One critter group from each participating school will be chosen to present their song, poem, or rap about their critter during the year-end celebration on May 16th.
Watershed Explorers, please use the green critter projects button above to access all the resources you will need to complete your projects.
I hope you have fun with this activity. I can't wait to see your final posters.
Thanks for all of your hard work.
