Comparision of Freshwater Habitats
Key StageKey Stage 4
Summary of Investigation
In this investigation, pupils use pond nets to take samples of invertebrates living in three micro-habitats, or three unique habitats (e.g. pond, river, canal). After identifying the animals they have found, they construct food webs and pyramids of numbers, before using this information to explain how pollution and other environmental changes would affect the biodiversity of the habitats that they have studied.
