Program: Ocean Lab

Topic(s)
Adaptations, Animal Biology, Living With Our Environment
Description
In this program, students discover the amazing ecosystem of the Rocky Pacific Coast. Using live animals, keys, and the scientific method, students focus on five different groups of tidepool invertebrates and fish, their interrelationships, and their ecology. Our closing activity relates human impact issues and solutions for this habitat to the students' own local aquatic environment.

The Ocean Lab Program is organized according to five phyla of marine species. Lab activities allow students to gain a deeper understanding of marine animals and issues associated with interdependence.
