Food Webs in an Estuary.
Dunne, Barbara B.
The Maryland Marine Science Education Project has produced a series of mini-units in marine science education for the junior high/middle school classroom. This unit focuses on food chains in an estuary. Although the unit specifically treats the Chesapeake Bay, it may be adapted for use with similar estuarine systems. In addition, the unit may be incorporated into existing life science courses using the Chesapeake Bay as a concrete example of working biological principles. The unit consists of the following components: (1) teacher's narrative, a brief content reading for the teacher on food webs, specifically related to the Chesapeake Bay; (2) student activities, a section of eight activities/games; and (3) a final section of resource materials. These include lists of junior high/middle school science texts where the mini-unit may be incorporated, student/teacher reading materials, and films/filmstrips to supplement student activities.
