Have You Been to the Shore Before? A Marine Education Infusion Unit on Seashore and Aquarium Life. Revised Edition.
Butzow, John W.; And Others
Classroom and field activities for fifth- through ninth-grade students comprise this teaching guide for the northern New England shore. Teacher background information contains an introduction to life at the shore and the animal classification of marine invertebrates. Activities stress two major concepts: (1) the diversity and complex interactions of marine organisms; and (2) the structural, functional, and behavioral adaptations these organisms make to the shore environment. Topics of classroom activities include saltwater aquariums, seashore life, seaweeds, and a field trip bulletin board. Field activities involve pre-trip planning, beach profiling, exploring for green crabs, and critter watching. Each activity identifies the objective, field site when appropriate, materials, timing, and procedure. Lists of organizational resources, resource persons, places to visit, films, and books are provided for the unit. Informational sheets are also included. (DC)
