Addresses AP® Biology Big Idea 1 and Essential Knowledge 1.A.1, 1.A.4, 1.B.2, and 1.C.3. Students investigate natural selection using brine shrimp. After quantifying brine shrimp hatch rates in environments of different salinity to determine viability, students do an inquiry activity to investigate other environmental changes that might affect viability and change the population.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very low viability on brine shrimp eggs Even when given optimal conditions, none of the brine shrimp eggs hatched. They seemed old or damaged (most in a random sample seen under magnification were dented in) and students had no luck in getting the experiment to work at all. It was pretty much a total failure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product was easy to use. My students enjoyed the relative ease of this lab. It also provided them with the opportunity to learn how to make percent by weight solutions.
