There would be 3 sessions of a 1 hr class for approx 20 4th and 5th graders per session.

Saturday March 19th: Insect I.D. Class
Students will learn how to use a dichotomous key to identify various pinned insects, meet a live millipede, and some other activities if time permits. Help for this class would be mostly in guiding students in using the key.

Saturday March 26th: Plankton and Water Quality Class
Students will identify plankton in a water sample and use a water quality test kit. Help with this class could be leading a group of 10 students in either the plankton study or water quality testing, or just helping with the microscope activity while someone else leads. Thanks everyone, remember the next meeting is March 14!
