Padilla Bay: The Estuary Guide. Level 2.
Friesem, Judy; Lynn, Valerie, Ed.
Estuaries are marine systems that serve as nurseries for animals, links in the migratory pathways, and habitat for a complex community of organisms. This curriculum guide intended for use at the middle school level is designed for use with the on-site program developed by the Padilla Bay National Esturine Research Reserve (Washington). The guide is divided into three main sections: (1) pre-trip information, activities, and resources; (2) on-site program materials; and (3) post-trip ideas that integrate the trip with language arts, social studies, mathematics, science, physical education, creative thinking, art, music, and health. All three sections are considered essential for the success of the program. Other sections in the guide contain information about the plant, human, and animal life related to estuaries and a form to evaluate the effectiveness of the program. (MDH)
