Investigative Case: The Nancy Creek Challenge part of Examples
Students examine a case study of fish kill in Nancy Creek and identify the environmental conditions that favor life in a fresh water ecosystem.

Subject: Geoscience:Hydrology:Surface Water:Water Quality/Chemistry , Environmental Science:Water Quality and Quantity, Biology:Ecology:Habitats:Freshwater

Investigative Case - Living in an Alkaline Environment part of Examples
Living in an Alkaline Environment is a three-part interactive activity that explores the ecology and diversity of life in alkaline environments.

Subject: Education:Assessment:On Line, Biology:Microbiology

Investigative Case - "Rio Grande Wildlife Refuge" part of Examples
As professional ecologists working for the fish and wildlife service, students must develop a plan to manage a new wildlife refuge along the Rio Grande River. The fish and wildlife service plans to connect forest islands along the river, which will become not only a new refuge but also a "wildlife corridor."

Investigating Regional Hydrogeology of the Mid-Atlantic Coastal Plain part of Examples
Exercise to recognize regional groundwater flow in the Cretaceous aquifers of the North Carolina and Virginia Coastal Plain and their changes through time. Includes interpreting flow before and after human withdrawals, so students can discover impacts on the groundwater system, especially for depletion and saltwater intrusion.

Subject: Geoscience:Hydrology

Investigative Case - Protistan Tales of Atlantic White Cedar Swamps part of Examples
The Protistan Tales of Atlantic White Cedar Swamps WebQuest features a guided exploration of microbial diversity. It introduces students to the extreme habitat of the Atlantic White Cedar Swamp and encourages them to explore characteristics of the microorganisms that live there. The WebQuest applies the personification theme of Aesop's Fables as a means to acquaint students with protists. It challenges them to search for microbial "personality traits" and to implement these traits into a creative storyline.
