Marine Biology and Oceanography, Grades Nine to Twelve. Part II.
Kolb, James A.
This unit, one of a series designed to develop and foster an understanding of the marine environment, presents marine science activities for students in grades 9-12. The unit, focusing on sea plants/animals and their interactions with each other and the non-living environment, has sections dealing with: marine ecology; marine bacteriology; plankton; algae (producers); animals (consumers); sponges; jellyfish; shellfish; crustaceans; spiny-skinned animals; vertebrates; sharks; bony fish; salmon; marine animals; and current issues such as oil spills. Each section has a student text (including several readings from "Scientific American") with related activities. Each student text is preceded by a teacher background section containing hints on how to use the section, additional information, and items requiring advanced planning. Each activity is preceded by a teacher background section providing additional information about the activity, including teaching hints and answer key for activities. Important vocabulary words/terms are listed in the teacher background sections; they are underlined in the student text. Activities are designed to enhance reading and investigational skills; several activities provide practice in mathematics skills. Although all activities can be modified to suit individual needs or be used "as is," it is strongly recommended that they be performed along with the readings/discussions found in student text material.
