The thing that surprised me that there are so many and we observed all of them.They are important because bigger animals eat them and humans eat the animals so they are great foods for the animals and foods we eat.
Something that surprised me was that they do not have a backbone and they can swim so fast without one!
Something that surprised is that there are more species in the water than I had expected. Also, when the water is really good the insects are on the top. That gives us information about the water quality.
the thing that surprised me was that macroinvertebrates where mostly insects and that they are there for the earth and food for other animals.
Many cool things surprised me about the macroinvertebrates. The one thing was how little insects are actually a big part of human life and the food web. They are so small so people think that they are worthless but they are actually a big part of everyone's life. They are important because they are important in the food web, they make soil, big part of life, and breaks things down like leafs.
I was surprised how many tiny tadpoles there were and how they were very tiny. They are very important because they are insects that are food and are good for birds and fishes.
There are a lot more macro invertebrates than i thought
It surprised me how much we need macroinvertebrates in our daily lives. They are important because we wouldnt be able to farm without them, they are digesters, and they help us find the water quality.
Macroinvertebrate are very important, they help us with farming, they eat plants to make soil, they are called digesters. Macroinvertebrates are also food for birds and fishes, which are our food. They also help you define the quality of water. If theres a lot then its good quality, but if there arent enough then it is bad quality. what was really surprising is that they are visible but not big enough to have a back bone.
I learned that macro invertebrate are something you can see with the human eye and has no backbone.Most of them are insects.Macro invertebrate are important because the insects are important to the food web and the insects are called dig esters because they make soil.
Something that surprised ,e is that there are a lot of macroinvertebrates. They are important because they are a huge part in our food chain.
Something that surprised me is that insects are actually very important to us humans and we shouldn't just kill them, we should think twice. Macroinvertebrate are important because there food for animals such as birds, & fish. That's important to us because we eat fish . Also they are disecters and they are eating the plants which makes soil. If they weren't there we wouldn't be able to farm.
I learned that there is a lot of diffrent types of macroinvertabrets there are in a tiny little amount of water and space.
I had learned that macroinvertebrates help determain if the water is in good or bad. They are important because they help with the food web.
Some things that i learned about macroinvertebrates that surprised me were that, you can see them with you eyes but they don't have a backbone. They're mostly insects. Depending on the type of insect it can tell you if water is good/medium/poor quality. Macroinvertebrates are important for many reasons. For example, They provide food, eat plants + make soil, and they'e very important in the food web.
It seems that if you look closer and closer and observe one thing carefully, the world gets bigger. Macroinvertebrates made me realize that there are many lives (big and small) on our beautiful planet Earth. So every creature should have the ability to be protected from pollution and unsanitary conditions.
The different species within the water such as the larvae of the dragonflies surprised me. Macroinvertebrates are important since they are at they bottom of the food chain, and they constantly eat plants,after digested it becomes soil.
I learned that a macroinvertebrate is something you can see with your eyes. They are important because they are at the bottom of the food chain. A lot of organisms depend on this for food. It eats plants and digests it then turns it into soil.
Macroinvertebrates are important because there at the bottom of the food chain and they constantly eating plants that turn to soil. The dragonfly nymph surprised me. Macroinvertebrates are things can see with your eyes and they have no backbone.
I never knew that macroinvertebrate had no back bone. They are important because they are important to the food chain.
Microinvertebrate: Something that you can see with our eyes and has no back bone. Something that surprised after watching and looking around after having a little lesson taught by a wonderful person was how all and any kind of animal can camouflage themselves with there surrounding to hide from there prey. They camouflage with plants, flowers, trees, or other animals. There was many other things that surprised me but that was the one thing that wowed me.
I didn't look at the bugs but I do know that they are important because they are at the bottom of the food web and they turn into soil.
I was surprised about how small the microinvertebrates were. Microinvertebrates are important because they are indicators to see how good the quality of water is.
One thing that surprised me was that in a small scoop of water there was so many different animals. Macroinvertebrates are important because they help show if a body of water is fresh or polluted.
Macroinvertebrates are important for telling the water quality. They also make soil and food for other animals in the food chain. I never knew that macroinvertebrates lived in waters around us.
I was surprised at how weird looking micro invertebrates are. some had a lot of legs while others had no legs. Micro invertebrates are important because they help indicate water quality. They tell you how good or poor the water quality is. Some can stand poor water quality while others can not.
Something that surprised me is how many purposes macroinvertebrates serve. They are the basis of the food chain which means they are the food of other organisms and they indicate water quality, whether it is good or bad. These are also the reasons they are important.
What I learned about Macroinvertebrates that they are small and even some of them can be visible by the human eye. Macroinvertebrates are important because they are part of the aquatic food chain.
I learned that macroinvertebrates indicate whether the water conditions are good or not. I was surprised when I learned that they have no spine, and you can see them with out any magnification. Macroinvertebrates are important since they indicate the condition of the water, are food for other animals, and preduce soil.
I learned that macroinvertebrates are actually important which is something i didnt realize before. Macroinvertebrates are important because they indicate water quality both good and bad, they are the bases of the food chain, and they are food for many other animals.
What surprised me about macroinvertebrates was that there were so many and they all are not super tiny, a lot of them you can actually see. Also macroinverterbrates are not just all bugs like I thought they were, tadpoles are macroinverterbrates too! The macroinvertebrates sre important because they indicate water quality, basis of the food chain, they are food for other organisms, they are digestors , and they help the soil.
It surprised me that macroinvertebrates determine the water quality. Macroinvertebrates are important because they are the bases of the food chain, indicate water quality, and is food for other organism.
I learned about marcroinvertebrate that it has no backbone. Their important because they indicate if water has good or bad quality.
Macroinvertebrates are very surprising organisms. From that lesson, I learned some very interesting facts. The one fact that really surprised me was macroinvertebrates stay in one place for up to 2 years and don't even move.
Macroinvertebrates are very important organisms to our waters. Macroinvertebrates indicate whether or not the water is polluted.They are the basis of the food web. They are also digesters, which means they break down plants to make soil. Lastly, because they stay in one place and do not move for a long period of time, they are easy to study.
I learned that macroinvertebrates tell if the water is good or bad quality. They show if the water is bad quality depending on the species such as leeches. They show that the water is good quality if there are certain species such as scuds.
I learned that macroinvertebrates are spineless bugs that often have a lot of legs. I never really noticed them, I just considered them some weird and useless insects. But they really aren't. Without macroinvertebrates, bigger organisms wouldn't even exist. They are the base of many food chains. Also, they help scientists determine the quality of the water they live in.
It was a great experience. we took a spoon and separated the different insects. Then we had to see which one was which. Like there was one of them that looked like a small tick. All of the insects were pretty cool.
Something that surprised me is that they don't have a spine, and they could have multiple tails. Macroinvertebrates are organisms and what makes them important is that they are important to the food chain, and to other organisms.
I learned how many there are and how cool they look. They are important because they eat the plants and trees to make them smaller so they decompose.
Something that surprised me was how fast they moved. They are important because they are digestors and they make soil better. Also they indicate water quality. Lastly they are the base of the food chain.
I didn't realize that the macroinvertebrates tell whether the water is polluted or not. That is why they are important. Some of the macroinvertebrates can survive in polluted water while others can't
I learned that macroinvertebrates are useful to our living. This surpised me through.
I learned the many kinds of species and specimen of macroinvertebrates, such as damsel flies, beetles, and tadpoles. I was surprised at how the damsel fly has a long body and a large head. Macroinvertebrates are important because certain types of macroinvertebrates determine the quality of the water.
I was suprised that so many bugs live in the water. Also that there are levels to if the water is poluted or not from the bugs thats live in that water.
I learned how important macroinvertebrates are to our environment and what a basis they are to the food web. They're important because they decompose all of the waste from larger animals and dead leaves that settle on the bottom of ponds.
How many animals or how many small creatures there were in just a small scoop of water outside
One thing that surprised me about macroinvertebrates was the the bull frog tadpoles were much bigger than all the other macroinvertebrates. The other macroinvertebrates were much smaller than the bull frog tadpoles
I didn't know what a macroinvertebrate was, let alone the wide variety we have in Mr.B's. I was really surprised that I found a leech in one of my samples. Macroinvertebrates are important because they are great indicators of water quality, they are an important part of the food chain and are digesters and break down plant material.
The one thing that surprised me was at how many macroinvertebrates we found in just one container. There were so many types of species. I loved how i got to learn about different animals and insects. Macroinvertebrates are important. One reason why is they are good indicators of water quality. Another reason animals eat them as food. The final reason is they are living dead lakes, woods, seaweed and grass.
I learned about how the different bugs tell you about the water quality.
Something that surprised me was that I never knew that there was that many macroinvertebrates were in Mr.B's ponds! Macroinvertebrates are so important because they are a very important part of the food chain, and they also break down plant material.
Macroinvertebrates are very cool. They actually surprised me a lot. One thing that surprised me that I thought was cool was that they can tell you if the water is clean or good enough to survive.
I learned that macroinvertebrates are an important parts of the food chain. Macroinvertebrates are also important because they are good indicators of water quality.
Dragonfly's in the nymphs phase can be fat. Macroinvertibrates are important because they are the basis of the food chain and they are food for others.
I was surprise at the number of species in the sample. There were so many different types of macroinvertebrates that I'd never seen or heard of before in just one container. Macroinvertebrates are important because they are good indicators of the water. They decompose dead organisms to mud and they are the basis of the food chain.
One thing that I learned about macroinvertebrates is that they are good indicators of water quality depending on what level they are on. Also the fact that they come in different shapes and sizes for instance they can have multiple tails and legs.
I learned that there are many macroinvertebrates that are very small, fast, and big. The weird thing that I found out is that there are some macroinvertebrates that are big and fast.
Here is something I learned about macroinvertebrates that surprised me.Macroinvertebrates could actually tell could clean the water in the pond is.This is something that I learned about macroinvertebrates that surprised me.
Macroinvertebrates are very important to the ecosystem and they keep the food chain in balance.
I learned that macroinvertebrate are very important. Without them us humans would not have survived. They are important because they are the basis of the food chain. They also live in water and make homes in grass and they create soil.
I learned that macroinvertebrates are basically invertebrates that are larger in size. Macroinvertebrates are important because they are the basis of the food chain and are important to other organisms for food. They are also important for shredding and digesting the environment.
When i was out that day, i saw big bugs like dragon flies and small red beetles. The macro invertebrates are important because they are the bases of the food chain, thy are part of the food chain, and they are shredding in vegetation.
Macroinvertebrates are important because, they are the basis of the food chain, they are important to other organisms, and they shread and digest vegetation. I was surprised of all the small animals I saw. Such as, the dragon fly, the Damselfly, the Non biting midge, the Alder fly, and the Whirligig beetle.
I learned that macroinvertebrates are not just annoying pests but they are important in the food chain. Macroinvertebates get eaten by another species and another species eats that species and so on.
I learned that macroinvertebrate are the basis of the food chain. They also have no spine. I also learned that they are important food and that they are digestors. They shred and digest.
That they are really small and have no spine. Also that macroinvertebrates can tell if water is good quality or bad quality. They are important because they are the bases of the food chain, they are important to other organisms, and they shread and digest vegatation.
That there are a bunch of bugs in the water. They show how healthy the water is.
After learning about macroinvertebrates I was able to realize the importance of the macroinvertebrates. They may be small but they have a big impact on other living things. It was very surprising when I learned that without macroinvertebrates animals and humans would not be able to survive. This really made me realize their importance.
I honestly didn't even know that the macroenvertebretes existed until we went to Mr. B's that one day. I learned that they live under the mud or in the leaves at the bottom. They are part of the water shed/Mr. B's. I also leaned that they are important.
I learned many things this year and to start off i leaned many things when we did the nature fest. I learned about the pitch pine and the black racer snake/my part of the project. I also learned many things in Mr. Bs like macroenvertebretes, hawks, tad polls, frogs,and a few different snakes. With the opportunity that i was given to learn about many organisms in Mr. B's this year was great i learned more then I was expecting to learn.
When I went out to Mr.B's backyard I was excited. I've been to Mr.B's a lot but every time I get excited because I know there will be something new. I saw a lot of things but what I found surprising is that it wasn't windy. When it's not windy you can really see the reflection in the water and it looks really cool. I saw 2 mallard birds , 3 maple trees , and 5 willows. There was also a BIG mushroom . There was frogs, wild flowers, cattails. i really want to learn more about turtles. I had a lot of fun!!!!
