LEEP Aquatic Plants and Aquatic Invasive Species Module

In the classroom lab, students are presented with a variety of aquatic invasive species that might threaten our lakes and waters. They are able to handle and compare various native and invasive plants and animals. Once at the lake, students “key” various plants from an assortment of aquatic plants and “rake” unknown plants to classify on-site. “Stars” are awarded for correctly identifying plants to add a fun competitive component.
