Step 2: Use our resources to prepare your students

Teachers must prepare their students for the stream study field trip, but EcoSpark can help with this too. There are two parts to this preparation:

1. Connect your upcoming stream study with a broader issue you are studying in class. Topics could include:

  • ecology
  • waste management
  • storm-water protection
  • urban sprawl
  • biodiversity
  • city planning
  • human health

2. Preparing students for the technical aspects of the stream study field trip by helping them learn:

  A. Why monitoring is important. 

  B. Bio-monitoring protocols.

  C. How to identify the benthos.
