Sea Searcher's Handbook: Activities from the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
Monterey Bay Aquarium Foundation, Monterey, CA.
The activities in this book guide exploration of rocky shores, wetlands, sandy shores, kelp forests, the open sea and deep sea, and introduce students to a variety of topics and different approaches. This material is written by marine educators and was tested with over 70,000 children visiting the Monterey Bay Aquarium (California) each year. The activities include strands in the disciplines of art, science, mathematics, and language arts, and are augmented by over 100 scientifically accurate illustrations of marine plants and animals. A glossary, resource lists, and conservation information that can encourage stewardship for the world's oceans are also provided. The activities are grouped into broad subject headings related to searching sea habitats, searching for sea life, and searching for interactions. Each group of activities includes field notes and a field guide that provide background information on habitats, animals, and plants. (DDR)
