My Students

My students are from a small rural town. Many of the students have grown up outdoors farming, fishing, and hunting. Being in the classroom doing book work is not always appealing. I teach an aquatic biology class that serves the students who are interested in furthering their knowledge about biology.

At times, the socioeconomic status of my particular students can be an issue.

For projects, like this, many of my students do not always have the ability to go out and by materials for themselves.

My Project

The best way to explore aquatic biology is to get hands-on in the environment. We get the opportunity to take kids out in the field to catch insects and larvae but need more nets in order to make these trips successful. Students identify different species and learn about their environments.

My students will explore the diversity of insects and research their habitat.

Students will have the opportunity to catch a variety of species to research. Students spend the semester looking at pictures of different organisms and this experience allows them to get hands-on exposure. As a class, we look at the complete collection and determine why we found each species in that particular body of water.
