Life in the Water

Choose either a single school-based program or field trip, or combine the two into a series.

In the classroom or outside at your school, use scientific tools to investigate samples of aquatic life. Look at adaptations to habitat, explore an aquatic food web, or see life cycle stages.

In the field, use dip nets and other tools as you explore the unique life cycles of the organisms that live in the water and depend on wetland and upland habitats to survive. At Broadmoor, this includes a choice of the marsh or vernal pool.
