Standard 4 Objective 3
3 class periods of 60 minutes each
Students will research a biotic organism from the ocean and create a tri-fold board or poster presentation about it. They will learn about its place in its ecosystem and how abiotic factors in the ocean such as salinity, depth, tides and water temperature affect the organism.
Objective: Students should gain a greater understanding of a marine organism and a marine ecosystem. They will also better understand the influence abiotic factors can have on marine biota.
Students should understand energy flow in food webs. They should also know what an ecosystem is. A basic understanding of salinity, depth, tides, and water temperatures would also be helpful. This specific information can be difficult to find.
