2 Raritan River

3 Raritan River 1 Science Content Water quality effects river ecosystems Animal species are indicators of ecosystem health and pollution River Content History of Raritan River Macro-invertebrates are the species for the Raritan River environment that can be used to determine the health of the Raritan River Science Tools Maps of New Jersey Dip Net Magnifiers Documentation Observation Journal

4 Lesson Plan Instructional Objectives (1 of 2) Students will understand: How water quality affects aquatic environments How animal species can indicate health of ecosystem What function a map can serve

5 Lesson Plan Instructional Objectives (2 of 2) Students will understand: How to use a dip net and magnifier How to identify indicator species Usage of Raritan River How to use an observation sheet

6 Lesson Plan Schedule (1 of 2) Introduction to Ecosystem Habitats & Water Quality (30 min.) –Logistics & Safety Briefing (5 min.) –PowerPoint Intro (10 min.) –Water Quality Activity (15 min.)

7 Lesson Plan Schedule (2 of 2) Transition & Walk to River Dock (15 min.) Indicator Activity & Journaling (30 min.) Summary (15 min.)

8 Water Quality Activity Small Scale Habitats –“Clean” Tank: soil, rocks, live animals –“Dirty” Tank: litter, no live organisms Healthy & Unhealthy –Drinking Water –Vinegar –Muddy Water –Chocolate Water Concepts of Turbidity FUNdamental Standard Enhanced

9 Indicator Activity Scrubbers, Rocks & Nets Dip Nets & Rock Collection Turbidity FUNdamental Standard Enhanced

10 Aquatic River Animal Scud – Freshwater Shrimp

11 Observation Journal Date and time Weather conditions Describe outside conditions Describe the water Identify aquatic animals Tally number of animals on field guide Water quality conclusion

12 Water Quality Activity Modifications Cognitive – Water Quality Small Scale Habitats –Label stickers –Communication board FUNdamental Barriers: Difficulty with verbal & written communication

13 Water Quality Activity Modifications Cognitive - Indicator Scrubbers, Rocks & Nets –Bring samples of water to tables –Communication boards FUNdamental Barriers: Difficulty with verbal & written communication

14 Water Quality Activity Modifications Low Vision – Water Quality Small Scale Habitats –Projected magnification –Oral description Healthy & Unhealthy –Oral description Barriers: May only see light, darkness, shapes/figures; visual field cuts Standard

15 Water Quality Activity Modifications Low Vision – Indicator Scrubbers, Rocks & Nets Dip Nets & Rock Collection –Magnification –Working in pairs Barriers: May only see light, darkness, shapes/figures; visual field cuts Standard

16 Water Quality Activity Modifications Age Related – Water Quality Small Scale Habitats Healthy & Unhealthy Concepts of Turbidity –Offering headsets –Advanced vocabulary Barriers: Impairments with hearing and dexterity with slight mobility Enhanced

17 Water Quality Activity Modifications Age Related – Indicator Scrubbers, Rocks & Nets Dip Nets & Rock Collection Turbidity –Offering headsets –Pool cue strap –Allow extra transition time Barriers: Impairments with hearing and dexterity with slight mobility Enhanced
