The pond were we observed water from is located about 10 miles from our school. We found several different macroinvertebrates in the water. This is a collected report of all of us. The macroinvertebrate that we found the most of was the dragonfly nymph. The one that we found the least of was the mayfly nymph. We are interested to see if other students in the study found out the same amount as us.

Hypothesis: We think that other schools will find different amounts of macroinvertebrates in their pond water.
