Food Web in the Bay
Sixth graders study the food web in a bay. In this food web lesson, 6th graders investigate the SAV- submerged aquatic vegetation of a bay including their predators, and how the organisms eat, have proper living space and water. They complete research guides using the assigned web sites before presenting what they learned to the class in a skit or oral presentation.

Impact of a Changing Climate on the Pacific Walrus
How many of us can say they've seen a Pacific walrus? Not many and one of the reasons is the impact of climate change on their aquatic environment. Children get to think about the food web of the Bering Sea by creating an actual web with animal cards and a ball of yarn, after they see how all animals and plants of the sea environment are connected, they discuss what would happen if one or more of the animals were to become extinct.

Week 8 - Sea Life
Using a magnifier, mini marine biologists examine the barbules of a bird feather. They swirl the it into a mixture of oil and water and then re-examine the feather. After the activity, discuss how the oily feathers pose a problem to sea birds during an oil spill and how an ocean food web may be impacted by such an occurrence.

Construction of Food Chains and Tracing Energy Changes
If you need a few basic activities for teaching food chains to your emerging ecologists, here they are. Three sheets of organism cards are included for learners to cut out and arrange according to trophic relationships. To make the most of this resource, you will want to find the student sheets provided on the National Science Teachers Association website; although there is enough material for a solid lesson here without doing so.
