A Carolina Exclusive!

Grades 9-12.
  • Learn about factors that influence climate patterns
  • Observe the effect of temperature on protist distribution
  • Describe how climate patterns influence the distribution of organisms
Students study the influence of climate patterns on the distribution of species by exposing protist cultures to different temperatures over a period of 3 days. Each day, students make observations and sample the population to calculate the distribution of the different protist species. Using their observations of the protist populations, students then consider real-life scenarios. Kit accommodates a class of up to 30 students working in groups of 3.
