Come explore how you can add excitement and bring alive ecological concepts in your science classroom with brine shrimp, also popularly known as sea monkeys. Learn how you can simulate the ecological conditions of the Great Salt Lake of Utah using low-budget pet store supplies, recyclable soda bottles, and brine shrimp eggs. Brine shrimp eggs are cheap, easily available at most pet stores and are also sold on Amazon. This hands-on interactive workshop will focus on conducting authentic real-world scientific inquiries with brine shrimp at a low budget. Discover the value of brine shrimp to teach complex topics in ecology such as organisms and their interactions with the environment, biotic and abiotic factors, food chain, life cycle and growth and development._x000D_
Classroom ready resources including vendor information for these organisms, care and feeding requirements, links to free teaching resources/interactives, and alignments to TEKS across grade levels will be provided.
