Coastal Awareness: A Resource Guide for Teachers in Elementary Science.
Rasmussen, Frederick A.
Intended to encourage elementary teachers to explore coastal ecology with their students, this guide presents background material, activity suggestions, and recommended resource materials that could be used in designing a week-long unit on Coastal Awareness. Discussed is how various physical processes such as waves, tides, and currents affect sandy beaches, estuaries, rocky shores, and marshes. About 20 related activities are described. Included in the resource materials section are an annotated bibliography and film list, information sources, and Sea Grant institutions. (WB)
