A creepy, crawly, wet investigation of the health of streams, ponds, and other freshwater environments. Following the easy-to-read BUGKIT manual, one to two students learn to collect, observe, sort, and identify aquatic insects as a tool for measuring water quality. Students can complete the activity at home after collection or spend an afternoon outdoors beside a stream. The BUGKIT includes mesh leaf bags for collection, trays and plastic dishes for sorting, a magnifying lens, BUGGUIDE, and a BUGBOARD identification chart. Ideal for bug-hunters, age 8 and up.
