Barker, Wells J.
Twenty-five coastal field study investigations, comprising this supplement to a junior high school earth science curriculum, are designed to help students obtain a fuller understanding of: (1) their coastal environment, (2) some of the problems which confront it, (3) the interrelationships between the land and the surrounding bodies of water, and (4) the opportunities for individuals to effectively work toward solutions to environmental problems. Each lesson includes key concepts, competency goals, objectives, site description, materials, vocabulary, procedure, and source of activity when appropriate. Some of the topics covered are currents, waves, tides, dunes, slope, velocity, mapping, salinity, water hardness, soil, light intensity, and evaporation. Appendices provide further information and tests. (DC)
