Motion from the Ocean
As part of our Oceanography unit, students will be choosing four jellyfish to research and create a hanging mobile representing the four species. While investigating life cycle, habitats, food sources, predators, environmental conditions (i.e. pollution, ocean acidity, temperature, etc.), and participate in Jellywatch.org.
Skills to be developed: citizen science, observation, identification, research, data entry, developing and creating models, obtaining, evaluating, and communicating information.
