Tides and Marshes.
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 tides and marshes. 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, including background reading for the teacher on tides and marshes and comments on student attitudes (2) student activities, a section of 10 activities/games; and (3) a final section of resource materials. These include a student/teacher bibliography, list of various junior high/middle school science texts where the mini-unit may be incorporated, and list of films to supplement student activities.
