Description

What kind of life can you find in lakes and ponds? Imagine the smooth, glasslike surface of a pond, the water mirroring a bright moon or a crystal blue sky. The water appears perfectly calm and still. What's going on underneath the surface? Lakes and Ponds! With 25 Science Projects for Kids invites kids ages 7 though 10 to investigate the bodies of water that might look calm from the shore but which are teeming with life and activity! Through fun facts and engaging content, readers explore the plants and animals living in lakes and ponds, from fish darting about to dragonfly nymphs gestating in the shallows to algae and aquatic plants converting sunlight into energy through photosynthesis. Discover fun facts about the duckweed, water lilies, and cattails growing in and around the waters of lakes and ponds. It's a busy place! In Lakes and Ponds!, readers dive in to discover how lakes and ponds are formed, how they are different, and what kinds of animals and plants live there. Through investigative STEAM activities for elementary school ages, such as building a model of a floating city similar to Tonle Sap, kids explore how humans have interacted with lakes and ponds throughout history and how we use this natural resource today. Discover how climate change and pollution affect the ecology of lakes and ponds and learn what you can do to help keep these biodiverse environments clean and healthy! From the Great Lakes, the Great Salt Lake, Walden Pond, Loch Ness, and the pond down the street from school, readers discover the life teeming in and around lakes and ponds. And did you know that large bodies of water have their own life cycles? Sometimes these can last for days, sometimes for thousands of years!
