Muncie Sanitary District- Life in the White River ‘Stay at Home’ Learning Lessons Pt. 8

#LifeInTheWhiteRiver continues to thrive with the Northern Hogsucker. This species has adapted morphologically to live in the fast-moving water associated with riffles and runs of the White River. Their long pectoral fins help navigate the river bottom while their wide and flattened head create downward pressure to hold them in place.

At-home activity for the kids:

Using natural materials and recyclables, create a variety of rafts in different shapes and sizes. How does the shape and size affect the raft’s buoyancy and speed?
Send us photos of your rafts for a chance to be featured on our page!
