A Ranger in Every Classroom: Plankton Lab - Invite Biscayne National Park Rangers into your classroom. Rangers will set-up a microscope lab in your classroom and bring water samples to explore. Students will learn to use microscopes, prepare wet slides and peer into a drop of water. Students will observe the structure of diatoms and phytoplankton and see copepods and zooplankton zoom across their screens.
