Module 9: Scientific Water Testing (Field Trip or Game)

Education module

It is infeasible to measure all of the pollutants that may exist in a waterway. Instead, scientists monitor ‘indicators’ such as water bugs to measure the condition of waterways.

In this module, students will:

  • understand the meaning of tolerant and sensitive water bugs
  • observe water bugs from their local waterway
  • identify water bugs using a Waterbug Identification Guide, as an indicator of the quality of the water from which the bugs were collected
