Coastal Awareness: A Resource Guide for Teachers in Junior High Science.
Rasmussen, Frederick A.
Background information, activity suggestions, and recommended resource materials comprise this guide for designing a week-long ecology unit for junior high school students on Coastal Awareness. Discussed is how various physical processes such as waves, currents, and tides affect rocky shores, marshes, sandy beaches, and estuaries. To encourage teachers to study coastal ecology with their students, about 30 related indoor and outdoor activities are briefly described. In addition to an annotated bibliography of 160 publications, the resource materials section also lists recommended films, data sources, and Sea Grant institutions. (WB)
