Investigating Ponds and Streams: How clean is our water? part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a field investigation where students gather data on ponds and compare the results to determine the quality of the water.

Subject: Environmental Science:Water Quality and Quantity, Geoscience

Stream Study: An Investigation of an Aquatic Ecosystem part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a field study where students gather data on a stream based upon their protocol. They will correlate their data with another group and present their results to the class. They will develop and defend in class a new experimental question for a spring study.

Subject: Geoscience, Environmental Science:Water Quality and Quantity, Environmental Science

Making Sense of Macroinvertebrates part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a field investigation where students gather and observe macroinvertebrates in a pond system. From their initial observations, students will formulate a question and test procedures.

Subject: Geoscience, Environmental Science:Water Quality and Quantity, Environmental Science

Stream Study: Assessing the relative health of streams by macro-invertebrate collection and Identification part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a field investigation where students gather data on stream health by collecting macro-invertebrates at three different locations and then develop an experimental question through land use and topographic map research to explain differences in water quality.

Investigating Aquatic Ecosystems: Macroinvertebrates and Water Quality part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a field investigation and comparison of three aquatic ecosystems.

Subject: Environmental Science:Water Quality and Quantity

TWO TYPES OF JOURNALING BEFORE POND STUDY part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This is a two part journaling activity prior to an existing week long biology field lab. The journaling activities described here have been added to the beginning of the Pond Study Lab to enhance student learning of observation and quality journaling skills.
