On Tuesday the 2oth of August Room 6 had a fantastic morning down at our local stream exploring and investigating the health of our waterways. Harriett showed us how to test whether our stream was healthy or not…

We checked the water clarity by seeing how far away we could see a black tab in a long tube filled with creek water. The  water  clarity was classed as okay. We could see the tab 86cm away.

Using a net, we collected many different creatures that live in Damselfly stream. Check out the photos of the Common Bully and the Damselfly.

We also checked the water flow and the PH level.

We had so much fun finding strange new creatures.

Thank-you Harriett!
