Ideally, field experience is best when learning about ecosystems however circumstances may limit this possibility. This activity is equipped with a virtual interactive to be used remotely or in a 1:1 classroom setting as a virtual lab review activity or a virtual prelab activity concentrating on measuring water quality through macroinvertebrate bioindicators. The interactive was created by me through Google slides and does not require any flash support. This is a real application of how biodiversity may be used to identify the health of an environment as well as how higher biodiversity supports an ecosystem. After completion, students should have a better understanding of the methods and purpose of measuring water quality through macroinvertebrates as well as the importance of biodiversity within an ecosystem.
