Where Have All the Menhaden Gone? A Learning Experience for Coastal and Oceanic Awareness Studies, No. 209. [Project COAST].
Delaware Univ., Newark. Coll. of Education.
This unit focuses on the concept that populations of marine organisms are unevenly distributed. It is designed for upper elementary and secondary school students and will take 6-10 class periods. Students become involved in identifying various causes of the uneven distribution of marine populations, especially that of the menhaden population. Because no conclusive evidence is given that supports any one cause of the decline, the students are faced with the dilemma that there are no actual answers to the problems. Included in the unit are student materials, teaching suggestions, transparency masters, evaluation materials, and selected references. (RH)
