After our fun field trip out at Snake Lake we came home to pull some pond water for a closer look. Holly scooped out pond water from her garden - from the surface, mid way down and then a scoop or two that included the bottom gunk. This way she would have bits from all areas in her pond.
Once the water settled a bit she studied it closely with a magnifying glass and made some drawings. We also looked up some information online about the critters we found, what might be in her pond and some great slides from a microscope. I had hoped to break out her microscope and take a closer look ourselves, but time got away from us... maybe next time!
