This semi-guided inquiry activity explores the macroinvertebrate fauna in
water sources affected by different levels of pollution. Students develop their
ability to identify macroinvertebrates, compare aquatic fauna from different
sources of water samples, evaluate water quality using an index, document
and analyze data, raise questions and hypotheses, and discuss other possible
issues that could be investigated at a later time. These sets of activities were
designed for freshman high school students but are applicable to middle school
students as well.
