North Carolina Marine Education Manual, Unit Two: Seawater.
Mauldin, Lundie; Frankenberg, Dirk
Although North Carolina's coastal water is chemically and physically similar to other bodies of sea water, the specific manner in which tides and waves act upon the coastline is unique. Accordingly, the 30 activities presented in this manual are intended to help junior high school students understand how physical forces modify coastal areas. While some lessons relate specifically to North Carolina, the majority address more general concepts of salinity, density, nutrient content, tidal forces, and wave motion. Each section contains background reading, vocabulary, 4 to 14 activities, and information on films, books, and other related resources. Also provided are a table depicting the relationship between the activities and state curriculum guidelines, and a summary of this unit's goals and behavioral objectives. The manual is one of a collection developed by North Carolina teachers and university faculty under a Sea Grant project entitled "Man and the Seacoast." (WB)
