Don't Be Crabby!
Pre-K – 2nd Grade
Students will investigate the adaptations and behavior of crustaceans (crabs) within an ecosystem with a focus on hermit crabs. Students will listen to a book about a hermit crab as a group, explore claw function, and examine real shells.
2nd – 5th Grade
Sandy Shells workshop has students explore the adaptations of shell design and structure of mollusks. Students will rank and record different data on various seashells by working with a partner to describe characteristics of shells.
3rd – 5th Grade
Students will take a journey through elasmobranch migration (shark and ray) while facing setbacks and advancements throughout their individual journey. Students embrace themselves acting as sharks or rays who discover challenges faced by migration such as storms, bioaccumulation, illness, predators, etc.
Diving Deep Into The Food Chain
6th – 8th Grade
Students will dive deep into understanding the marine food chain of elasmobranchs (sharks and rays) within the marine ecosystem. Content area covered consists of science, environmental education, conservation, ecology, and bioaccumulation. Students will conduct a food chain activity as a group to better understand the transfer of energy.
Marine Food Chain and Career Exploration
Students will dive deep into understanding the marine food chain of elasmobranchs (sharks and rays) within the marine ecosystem. Students find out the consequences of bioaccumulation, biomagnification, and microplastics on marine life. Students will conduct a food chain activity and write a solution on how to limit microplastics. After exploring concepts from the marine food chain, students will be introduced to marine careers and how to currently get involved.
