Grade 9-College. Students assume the role of environmental forensic scientists to solve a fictional crime, an algal bloom breakout, by integrating core concepts in biology. They have the opportunity to use macroinvertebrate keys to calculate site index ratings and microscopy to identify algal samples involved in creating the bloom. This kit is designed for 32 students working in 8 groups of 4.
Grade 9-College. The Lake Carson City Park is in desperate need of your help. An algal bloom has broken out in the lake, and it is threatening to shut down local businesses and send this vacation paradise into a downward spiral. Biology students jump into the role of forensic scientists as they work to solve this fictional crime. Using deductive reasoning and scientific methodology, they process evidence from the crime scene and integrate concepts—such as data analysis and scientific writingto help build a compelling case. Students stay engaged throughout the investigation as they conduct microscopy on algae and use a macroinvertebrate key to determine aquatic community health. This compelling kit brings forensic science into your biology classroom. The kit is designed for 32 students working in 8 groups of 4 and includes a prepaid coupon to request perishable material later at your convenience.
