Let’s Go Native
Students research native plants and animals to see if the organisms can live in their classroom pond. The students
will eventually introduce some of these organisms into the pond ecosystem.
1. Determine if their native plant or animal can live in the pond based on the water quality measurements taken and what they know about the environment
2. An organism’s niche, habit and structures and functions
3. Explain the importance of native populations
pond, nutrients, habitat, niche, ecosystem, structure, and function
