Heath Marin's Internship, Fall 2013 - Part 3

The next set of lessons I'm working on focuses on students building on prior knowledge and concepts of currents and other biogeochemical factors in the Gulf that affect larval settlement and dispersal. They will see how flow from strong currents and riverine drainage can have an effect on the Gulf ecosystem. Students will do a WebQuest of the systems in the Gulf and how various factors come together. For the final project, students will select an organism commonly found in the Gulf and create a descriptive visual cause/effect representation of three factors that affect that organism and its effects on the Gulf ecosystem and humans.
