How Do People Use Lighthouses and Navigational Charts? A Marine Education Infusion Unit. Revised Edition.
Butzow, John W.; And Others
Activities concerning navigational charts and aids are presented to help fifth- through ninth-grade students learn about the shape of the sea, its coast, and contours, and about the road signs of the sea which warn against danger and help mariners locate their positions. Teacher background information includes information on marine charts, navigational aids, lighthouses, and navigation. The multidisciplinary activities involve identifying lighthouse characteristics and chart symbols, reading about lighthouse keepers, writing poetry and log entries, and doing navigational problems. Lists of marine charts, government publications, books and articles, and places to visit are provided for the unit. Informational sheets and student handouts are included. (DC)
