We began our study of life forms today by preparing mini-pods to study aquatic organisms. Our students collected samples of soil, grass/leafs, and water.
In this experiment we did have a control and a variable. In two of the classes we used regular water from the sink, and in Mrs. Drake's Class we used water from a koi pond from outside.
They used these materials to create a habitat for aquatic organisms to grow. This will help us when we begin our lesson on aquatic life forms.
