For March 15, 2017: As spring and summer approach, it's time to think about studying the water quality and habitats of creeks. Creek Connections is a partnership between Allegheny College and regional K-12 schools and uses the local waterways as outdoor laboratories. Data collected from the studies is available to the public. Classroom resources are an outstanding feature at this site. Water chemistry, aquatic insect fact sheets, testing tips, and studying waterways are some of the materials available for downloading and printing. In addition, there are original word searches, Creek Geek Knowledgy, and matching games. This is a great site for teachers and students.

Fly over to CyberBee at for more great websites, lessons, and activities to use with students.
