In this interactive lesson, students will increase their understanding of the important role that freshwater mussels play in our watershed. Students will learn about freshwater mussel species, how mussels improve water quality in rivers and streams, and the steps being taken to ensure their protection from factors that threaten their survival. Students will read informational text, watch videos, analyze images, take notes, and complete short assessment activities. As a final assignment, they will write an opinion article supported by evidence they’ve collected during the lesson.
