In our school we wanted to let students learn more about our project and help us collect data. We came up with a plan since we had a surplus of Amphipods we decided to let students own their own little pet Amphipod. Our main goal were to educate students about our project mainly about what we use to clear the algae Daphnia(Water Fleas clear micro algae) and Amphipod(Invertebrate that clear the algae we can see). We made a few questions for them to answer and at the bottom is some of their responses. The responses are in a galley click the pictures.
The questions were
1. What did you like best about this experiment? Explain
2. What reaction(s) do you see coming from your pet Amphipod?
3. How do you feel about your pet? Do you like it? Explain
Most of these questions were giving to the new 4th-8th graders but some didn't have enough time making short responses.
Some of them sent us picture of there pets in their home.
