When working with elementary students, one never knows when that moment of “magic” will happen. For the author, an environmentalist who also conducts outreach activities with elementary students, one of the best of these experiences happened during a water-exploration trip in Ohio.

This article is a fantastic read for teachers everywhere trying to gain information on sights and sounds of aquatic life. This article provides plenty of resources and tips when exploring aquatic life and it does a fantastic job at helping to keep the environment healthy while doing the experiments. It gives way of how to take students being silly by whale calling into the stream and making it into a very educational and memorable experience that can be done the school’s backyard pond. It is definitely a must read!
