Observing Aquatic Organisms
In this section, students add more organisms to their aquariums, including anacharis, duckweed, and snails. Students make careful observations of the structures of these organisms and relate structure to function. Students also begin a drawing of their aquarium, illustrating the different organisms. In addition, students investigate the process of photosynthesis and communicate their results.
