					Will the living creatures found in pond water
       be the same all over the world?

          Our Thinking on 9/30/08

No. The living creatures could be bigger or
smaller or different colors.

No. They’re going to be different and have
different shapes and sizes.

Maybe they’ll be the same and maybe not.

Maybe some of the ponds will be the same.

Yes. I don’t think there will be different
living creatures in the water.
         Our Pond Water Observations

We live in Iowa, and our class looked at pond water
from DMACC (Des Moines Area Community College).

We did not find any amphipods or dragonfly nymphs in
our water.

We found 15 water fleas, 2 caddisfly larvae, 1
damselfly nymph, 1 mayfly nymph, 2 midge larvae, 1
mosquito larva, 4 snails, 1 bristle worm, and 9
bladderworts in our pond water.




     We used a proscope to take this photograph of a
     damselfly nymph.
