A Catalog of Curriculum Materials for Marine Environment Studies--Elementary and Secondary.
Delaware Univ., Newark. Coll. of Marine Studies.; Delaware Univ., Newark. Coll. of Education.
This partially annotated bibliography on marine environment contains a list of learning experiences and curriculum units for elementary and secondary students. A majority of materials were published in the 1970s. Subjects include biological oceanography, which deals with general and specific aspects of marine biology such as plankton, invertebrates, marshes, and aquaria; physical and chemical oceanography which includes tides, waves, seawater composition, and water pollution; and geological oceanography, which covers beaches, tectonics, and sea floor topography. The final category, general oceanography, cites materials which cover more than one topic or which fit into categories such as resource economics and resources from the sea. This section is divided into two parts: laboratory experiments or field investigations and classroom materials. The catalog is divided into two sections: units suitable for elementary level and those suitable for the secondary level. Entries within each section are listed alphabetically according to author or sponsoring organization. (Author/KC)
