Maine Univ., Orono. Coll. of Education.
This multidisciplinary unit deals with whales, whaling lore and history, and the interaction of the whale with the complex marine ecosystem. It seeks to teach adaptation of marine organisms. It portrays the concept that man is part of the marine ecosystem and man's activities can deplete and degrade marine ecosystems, endangering the survival of species and affecting marine habitats. The unit is targeted at grade level 4, 5, or 6, but may be adapted for K-12. It requires a minimum of 15 classroom hours or may be expanded to a full year's program. (RE)
