Assessing Aquatic Health of WNY Ecosystem Lesson Plan

Assessing Aquatic Health of WNY Ecosystem Presentation

This lesson was developed by two Limno Loan educators. The lesson has the students compare water quality measurments from various water bodies. The students first predict what values they expect to find at each site, and then collect samples and graph out their data. Afterwards they reflect on what they actually measured vs. predicted, and what those measurments reveal about the health of the particular water bodies.
