Algae Investigation

[Note: Underlined text indicates a link that downloads additional content.] 

In this lab, students will investigate algae: review anatomy and functions of different parts of algaes, classifications, and place in the food web. This lab additionally allows students to create a herbarium- a preserved piece of algae art. Following algae exploration, students will learn how algae is used in day to day products, and how it functions as a gel in food substances. Students will apply this knowledge to make an algae extract infused homemade ice cream.
