It was a warm day to be outside! Everyone did a great job with finding organisms. Highlights of the day included the bare handed capture of bullfrogs by Ms. Barnette, the many crayfish and the turkey that got away!

So many diatoms!!

Day two of looking at diatoms at the total yield from the 2 days is 202 diatoms! Think about the fact that these diatoms were found in just a FEW drops of water! How many diatoms would there be in an entire stream?? The ocean???

Thank you to all who had the patience to search through the water to locate these tiny wonders.

Day one!

Today was the first day for data collection. We took rocks from a tributary of Sherman Brook on campus and scrubbed them using toothbrushes to extract the diatoms and algae.

It was difficult to find the diatoms, but we had some success. Other organisms observed included; algae, aquatic plants, insect larvae and worms.
