Lesson Exchange: Brine Shrimp (Elementary, Science)
A warning: Brine shrimp are not completely predictable animals. Occasionally the method described
has not worked--the eggs have not hatched or the newly hatched shrimp have died within a few
days. If you have difficulty, you can involve your students in a search for a method that will work
for your particular set of conditions. The children will gain a sense of the delicacy and complexity of
a living organism and the rather narrow range of conditions under which it can live. (I usually have been
successful in having children keep their jars going for about 2-3 weeks--then they go home)
Living Things: Families
At any one time in history, there are millions of different kinds of plants and animals in the world. In 1753, a scientist in Sweden named Carolus Linnaeus thought of an orderly system for classifying plants and animals. He grouped all organisms according to a two-part name (binomial). The first part of the name is the "generic" grouping or genus.

Maine Wildlife Programs for Schools
Our Wildlife Programs are expanding this year to include more sessions at Swan Island in Richmond. During the 2002 school year over 3000 children participated in programs at the Pine Tree Arboretum, the Maine Wildlife Park and Swan Island. Swan Island is a unique experience that I'm sure you and your students will enjoy. It is a bit more difficult to get to, but well worth the extra effort. Hope to see you at either the Arboretum, Wildlife Park, or the Island this year. Remember, register your classes early!
