We learned how MacroInvertebrates could indicate the North Concho River's water pollution in this simulation.

First we learned how people collect benthic invertebrates:  Kick sampling pics.docx  

Second, we learned how to identify the critters that indicate, Good water, Medium water and Bad water.

Third, we practiced with imaginary samples:

         They followed this powerpoint: MacroInv & Pollution warmup.pptx

         Notes for Macroinv & Pollution WARMUP.docx   

                                                     which was followed by:  Macro Invert WS #1.docx


The next day, we learned how two hypothetical guys gathered critters from 6 different locations along the 

        North Concho River.     Here are the locations:  Macroinvertebrates & pollution MAP of North Concho.doc


Students filled out: Stream-Bottom Macroinvertebrates (Diversity and Pollution) Student Sheet.doc

while using the Macroinvertebrates and pollution Reference (Pink).doc


Below are the pics of the critters at all six locations:  29th Street Dam @Kirby Park.doc & 19th Street, near the Juvenile Justice Center.doc  & 14th Street near City Lumber .doc  & 6th Street dam @Bryant & Loop Junction .doc  &  1st Street, near Santa Fe Golf and CHS tennis.doc  & Bell Street near Rio Concho Manor.doc
