In stock and available to ship.

  • Aligned with Big Idea 4 and Essential Knowledge 4.A.5, 4.A.6, and 4.B.4
  • Emphasizes Science Practices 3, 5, 6, and 7

Explore dissolved oxygen consumption in the presence of producers and consumers in an aquatic food chain.

  • Study community interactions in an aquatic food chain
  • Measure dissolved oxygen concentrations using the Winkler method protocol
  • Describe how food webs and other factors, such as predation and abiotic changes, influence species distribution and abundance in communities

Help your students make a big picture connection across communities and populations by characterizing food webs and other factors, such as predation and abiotic factors. Students master the Winkler titration method for measuring dissolved oxygen concentrations. Using this tool, they measure dissolved oxygen fluctuations to assess the relationships between species in an aquatic food chain (Daphnia, Chlorella, and Hydra). After understanding the dynamics of the aquatic food chain, students introduce new variables to design their own experiment using the producers and consumers. The 8-Station Kit includes enough materials for a class of 32 students working in groups of 4.

Carolina Investigations® for AP* Biology Kits

Teach AP® Biology Your Way with Support from a Name You Can Trust

With the current AP® Biology curriculum, you are no longer limited to 12 prescribed labs in your classroom—meaning you can now teach the course using labs that fit your classroom and student interests.


Exclusive kits from Carolina

Carolina is proud to be the only supplier with unique kits and activities that are exclusively designed for the new AP® curriculum. Our Carolina Investigations® series is specifically aligned to the Big Ideas and Science Practices and was built from the ground up with the help of expert AP® teachers.


Inquiry made simple

Focused on making inquiry easier in your classroom, Carolina Investigations® kits feature activities that allow students to take a guided approach to inquiry while building their Science Practices and connecting the Big Ideas. These kits offer an initial skill-building activity that features a more traditional classroom approach. This is followed by a secondary investigation using a unique experimental design template to help guide those student-driven, inquiry-based learning opportunities.
