Disrupted Food Webs: Exploring the Relationship between Overfishing and Dead Zones in the Chesapeake Bay
Wyner, Yael
Science Scope, v33 n7 p78-85 Mar 2010
This inquiry-based activity provides a real-world example that connects to students' everyday seafood choices. In fact, many students went home and insisted to their parents that they should only buy "green" seafood choices. It was also an effective activity because students were able to use what they learned about ocean ecosystems and apply it to a diagram of a local terrestrial ecosystem. As a result of this activity, students have a better understanding of how we impact food webs and why they are important for a healthy, functioning natural world. (Contains 2 figures.)
