Hart, Kathy, Ed.
A series of science experiments and activities designed for secondary school students taking biology, chemistry, physics, physical science or marine science courses are outlined. Each of the three major sections--chemistry, biology, and physics--addresses concepts that are generally covered in those courses but incorporates aspects of marine science. Within each section, major concepts such as density, pH, photosynthesis, respiration and sound are supported by student activities. Each activity contains background reading materials, a materials list, procedures for completing the activity, and extension ideas. At the end of each concept division, references, resources, and education competencies are listed. The chemistry section includes activities on chemical reactions in the marine environment; density dynamics and estuaries; pH, equilibrium and ocean buffering; and behavior of gases in the marine environment. The biology section includes activities on new discoveries; biochemistry; animal adaptations; geologic history and the oceans; seashells and scientific names; behavior of ocean creatures; and man and the ocean. The physics section includes activities on the motion of the ocean, sound, and light in the sea. (KR)
