Leaf Pack Macroworld - Macroinvertebrates!

Leaf Pack Macroworld - Macroinvertebrates!

Twice or more a week, my classes will walk outdoors to the study area and photograph things they want to find out more about. We will use the Project Noah volunteers to help us learn more about this area. There is a whole world of decomposers around us that have a vital part in our natural world. I’ve done this activity with my school kids and they love it! We invite other educators and investigators to join in! Sign in to join mission

My class will investigate leaf packs for strange and mysterious critters. We invite other macro explorers to share their sightings! Our goal is to find and identify as many unfamiliar species as possible as extension activities for our science classes.
