Join us for a day of learning about macroinvertebrate communities in Vermont streams. Involving students in sampling and identifying macroinvertebrate communities is a terrific place-based, hands-on approach to teaching standards addressing earth systems, ecology, human activities and impacts on natural resources, biodiversity, and environmental change.
- Identify macroinvertebrates found in Vermont’s streams
- Learn which taxa indicate good vs. poor water quality
- Locate a stream near their school
- Prepare a WikiEducator webpage to facilitate students’ identification of the taxa found at nearby stream site
