Healthy Waters part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is an mock investigation into different macroinvertebrates found in the streams in your local city. Students will record and analyze data that will lead them to learn if the water quality is good or bad in their backyard.

Subject: Environmental Science:Water Quality and Quantity, Geoscience

Investigating water quality through quantative and qualitative analysis of benthic macroinvertebrate sampling. part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
In activity is a Biology field lab where students will investigate the relative health of an aquatic system based on bioindicators. Students will then summarize and reflect upon their findings.

Subject: Environmental Science:Water Quality and Quantity

Disasters to Nature: Sensitivity of Ground-Water Systems to Pollution part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a field investigation where students will observe three areas with high sensitivity to pollution, and test water quality in two of the locations.

Subject: Environmental Science:Water Quality and Quantity, Geoscience:Hydrology:Ground Water:Water quality/chemistry

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.

Subject: Geoscience, Environmental Science:Water Quality and Quantity

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

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

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.

Using Benthic Marcoinvertebrates Captured by Rock Baskets to Determine Biodiversity in a River. part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
In this ecology investigation, students will build and place rock baskets to collect benthic macroinvertebrates in a local waterway. They will observe and identify their macroinvertebrates and use the data to determine the pollution tolerance index for various areas of a river.
