Our Aquaponics lesson plan introduces students to aquaponics, including its history, how it’s used today, and how it works. During this lesson, students are asked to complete an interactive activity in which they make a poster depicting how an aquaponics system works, including captions and pictures. Students are asked to match terms with their definitions, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson vocabulary.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define aquaponics, identify and explain the steps in aquaponic systems, and list the advantages and disadvantages of aquaponics.
