  The Experiment
    


All the students did the same investigation; they went to a fresh water source near their school, collected samples, and identified the organisms.  

"They come in eager to get started, they stay on task, there are fewer behavior problems, and their persistence is much greater than in more traditional lessons." 
Connie Rogers
     
This classroom activity was a traditional middle school experiment that was enhanced using today's technology.  Therefore, there was no concern about spending valuable class time on an activity that was outside traditional curriculum. 


Look at the slides below to see five pictures taken on P.S. 22's field trip to do their water sampling.  These pictures were taken with an ordinary 35mm disposable camera.   The pictures were scanned and placed on the original website several hours after the field trip.
