The students will establish an understanding of the processes of life that takes place on the seashore due to environmental conditions and changes constantly taking place (e.g. tides & waves crashing on rocks, salinity of water, heat of the sun, predators) etc.
Students will create their own seashore guidebook by recording information and drawing the details of species from the seashore that have been collected for the Explorers Aquarium. Students are to explore and learn about the species and plants through their own investigation and draw them in detail. Students should become familiar with the species and seaweeds names.|
