Description:

In this data analysis and environmental science activity, learners examine the effects of pollution on amphipods using data from the Chesapeake Ecotox Research Program. Learners calculate the average reburrowing time for four different treatments (placement in different sediment types) and create a bar graph comparing averages for all four treatments. Educators can use this activity to introduce learners to data analysis, biological indicators, and the research process.
