A “Grab and Go” teaching tool! The Aquatic Invaders Attack Pack is a rucksack filled with materials to help teach students and other groups about Great Lakes aquatic invasive species (AIS), the problems they cause and what can be done about them. Each pack includes preserved specimens of some of the most problematic AIS in the Great Lakes, rugged plastic fact sheets, a classroom guide, a Pennsylvania Aquatic Invasive Species Field Guide, and a lesson plans created by the Great Lakes Sea Grant Network. The packs are designed to complement the Nab the Aquatic Invaders! website hosted by Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant.
Creek Connections has added other materials you will need for each activity in an additional box similar to other Creek Connections modules
Many thanks to PA Sea Grant for the use of this Aquatic Invaders Attack Pack! Contact them for other great resources on aquatic invaders and more!
The Attack Packs were created by the University of Wisconsin Sea Grant Institute as part of a Great Lakes Sea Grant Network grant from the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative.
