Ecosystem contrasts between the Caribbean Coral Reef and the Rocky coast of Maine are the focus of this instructional resource. The publication, issued four times a year, explores single topics through an interdisciplinary, multicultural approach. The activities presented in this issue encourage students to consider the role of temperature, sunlight, waves, and tides in the creation of unique marine environments. Following background information concerning the theme, a 3-step, integrated science and social studies lesson plan is given. Objectives, materials, and procedures are indicated. Three reproducible student activity pages, including one given in both English and Spanish, are included. A glossary, answer keys, and list of resources conclude the issue. (MM)
