Ron's Pond Scum

Top Subjects:  Animals   Art/Architecture   Geography   Health   History   Math   Reading   Science
Resource:Ron's Pond Scum
Provider:Ron DeAngelis
Summary:Age Range: 8-18 (Grades 3-12, with parental supervision). This website provides a virtual exploration of the critters living in pond scum.
Description:When you get to the site, simply click on the links in the text to see remarkable photographs and learn about:
  • protozoan
  • paramecium
  • actinopods
  • vorticella
  • anchor worms
  • fly larvae
  • amoeba
  • water mites
  • algae
  • and other single-celled and multi-celled oddities
All of this comes to you courtesy of a retired Computer Systems Analyst named Ron DeAngelis. Several years ago, he set up an outdoor fish pond and became interested in micro pond life. He bought a good microscope and when he discovered he could take excellent pictures with a digital camera, "Ron's Pond Scum" was born!

Ron gets emails from students all over the world, as well as from frustrated parents who confide that without Ron's website, their child would never have finished his or her science project.

Ron's Pond Scum is a terrific way to explore the life teeming in pond water without getting wet. It's a great supplement to any science curriculum.
