|Aquatic Habitat for the Classroom|
|Post Date:||September 11, 2019|
Build an aquarium in your classroom. Aquariums are a living example of how an ecosystem works. Students will see how this aquatic system works from the parts of a functional aquatic habitat to oxygen needs and the cycle of how the fish waste feeds plants. Your aquarium ecosystem will have guppies/babies, snails, plants, etc.
When you purchase the equipment - owners of Becker Pet & Garden in Detroit Lakes will explain the entire process as they help you build the ecosystem. The range for a 10 gallon is $50-75 for filters, lights, etc. Your class can also visit the store to pick out the equipment, beware that because of the size of the store they can do a maximum of one class at a time. The more specific the topics/concepts the teacher requests the more helpful it is for staff to plan a meaningful activity. This aquarium activity is geared to grades 2 - 5.
Choose to purchase your aquarium at Becker Pet & Garden and make it an educational experience. Becker Pet & Garden - Phone 218-847-8265.
