For April 15, 2010: Meet the invertebrates through art and photography with help from watersheds.org, the website of the Bryant Watershed Education Project in south central Missouri. Follow the process of determining the water quality of streams by identifying water life. Play the game Stoneflies and Aquatic Worms, and use the Identification Key for stream insects. Print the macroinvertebrate count sheet to assist in keeping a tally of creek life. Don't miss the stream invertebrate movie on habitats and water quality. The teacher guide provides step-by-step instructions for using the movie with students. Handouts for student work can be printed from the student guide. The photographs of the "Stream Team Does Critters" will assist when planning for a day at the stream. And don't forget to take your camera.
