The Project

Project Title Marsh Ecosystems
Insects To Study Common marsh wetlands insects
Project Description Our group is studying the marsh as part of a summer science focus on ecology. We are using materials from JASON Project : Resilient Planet. http://www.jason.org/public/WhatIs/CurrORPIndex.aspx Since we live on the Atlantic Coast, we have an amazing ecosystem of saltwater marsh to give the finale to our summer work. We will be looking at the insects and exploring how they relate to our food chain and the health of the ecosystem. We will also be doing microscope work on water, plant, and insects through this unit. The electron microscope images will surpass anything that we could provide for our children.
