Hi, sounds like a great project good luck with it. The simple answer to your question is yes. I use a little higher magnification for my routine work which involves testing water samples. At 200x you will see a lot of different litle bugs in the water. I do not want to outline too much as I do not want to give away what you will find. Just one little suggestion, when you get the water samples from the creek etc ask you mom to collect the water from an arms length under the surface as well as using water from the top of the pond etc. This will give you some differences Good luck
