Middle School Science / 7th Grade

Slime Invasion!

How can we stop a killer slime invasion?

Students investigate the phenomenon of a “slime invasion” of Lake Erie to figure out why algae has taken over the lake and is killing fish. Groups investigate bodies of water in their area. They then write and present an Algae Action Plan to reduce the risk of slime invading the water in their own community.

Key content: cells and cell parts, photosynthesis, cellular respiration, cycling of matter and energy, ecosystems

"What I like the most about Educurious was how the whole class came together and worked on their projects."
