Pond study - pond ecosystem- layers of a pond

made to order


Interactive pond study set perfect for the little one in your life who loves the water!

This set features beautiful illustrations of life in and around a pond. The moveable pieces make for an interesting storytelling experience. What better way to learn than through imaginative stories!

Without realizing they are learning, kids will play to learn that:ย 

๐Ÿ  A pond has 3 layers - epilimnion/upper layer, thermocline/middle layer, hypolimnion/bottom layer.ย 

๐Ÿ  The top layer of the pond is home to many plants and animals including the water lily, adult frogs, young frogs, frogspawn, wooducks, dragonflies, pond skators, and floating algae.ย 

๐Ÿ  The middle layer houses life including newts, leeches, tadpoles in various stages of development, minnows, and bluegill fish.ย 

๐Ÿ  The bottom layer is not densely populated but includes bones of dead animals, submergent water plants, and pond snail - just to name a few.

๐Ÿ  The pond shore is thriving with small and big animals.

๐Ÿธ The complete life cycle of the frog and which layer of the pond a frog lives in during each stage of its life.

๐Ÿ  And finally, the pond life cycle itself.ย 

This material measures 10.5"x8" is made of maple (base) and aspen (moveable pieces, they stand by latching on to the base) and have been finished with Cmyk ink and linseed oil.

**Please note this picture is of a prototype. The final version (I will update the pictures) will have the pond ecosystem label on the base.ย
