Oh How, Oh How Does Your Gag Grouper Grow?
Students will be able to understand the life cycle of the Gag Grouper either by communicating with a primary grade classroom OR by viewing a background Prezi. They will then discuss the variables that affect the gag groupers chance of survival. Finally students will both use available on-line data to document the best chances for Gag Grouper survival and model that scenario. This lesson builds upon the current data generated by (Mary, Michelle and Rachel’s lesson on currents).It also builds upon the salmon gauntlet to increase student understanding of the diversity of the marine world. It would be a great addition to an ecology unit.
