Life Science: TerrAqua Column
Building Your TerrAqua Column
The most basic TerrAqua Column combines a deep base unit with deep funnel and top units. We added an internal unit to the aquarium in our Essential Science for Teachers TerrAqua Column to provide additional viewing and photographing space.
What you stock your TerrAqua Column with involves your goals for study, the sources of your specimens — local or purchased — and your own creativity. The simplest way to stock your Column is to collect from your local environment. Because our goals were to use the TerrAqua Column as a learning tool for the Essential Science for Teachers course, we combined local collections with purchased specimens to make our system particularly diverse.
Depending on the activities you choose to do, you may need one or more of the following:
- Get A Life Necklace — for “Get A Life!” activity
- Petri plates with prepared media — for “Now You See It” activity
