Product Description
Students will learn about how many lakes there are in Florida and be challenged to explore a few chosen lakes on a field trip or student/parent outing. Students will use water testing kits to determine if the water is oligotrophic, mesotrophic, or eutrophic as well as recording other field data.

The second activity included shows the relationship between the shape of a fish's mouth to the diet that it consumes. Students are given pictures of various native Florida Fish and they must accurately identify what the fish might eat based on the shape of its mouth. They will then complete a true/false section where they are asked to fix incorrect sentences with the appropriate information.

Brown Bullhead: all of the above
Eastern Mosquitofish: drifting terrestrial insects in the water
Florida Gar: large and small fish
Warmouth: all of the above
Largemouth Bass: both 1 & 2
