Marine Habitats of Galveston Island
Four lessons introduce elementary ecologists to salt marsh and sandy beach habitats. In the first lesson, they place shells and other materials in vinegar to determine if they contain calcium carbonate. In the second lesson, they read a mystery in which a blue crab has gone missing.

Wetlands and Saltmarshes
Students identify the different functions of a wetland system and why the system is important to the St. Mary's River ecosystem and the environment. They play a migration game and write a journal about the salt marsh periwinkle and how wetlands and marshes are important to its survival.

The Ocean's Nursery
Linear perspective, estuaries, and water ways converge in a science-inspired art project. The class uses what they've learned about eco-systems, estuaries, and the food chain to create scale models of a local marsh. While the lesson is intended for an art class, it would be best if taught during or after learners have been exposed to the concepts of habitat and water ecosystems.

A Tail to Tell
Students observe populations of Lumbriculus to discover some of the adaptations that allow them to live successfully along the shores of ponds and marshes. They also design and perform experiments to test proposed hypotheses for these observed behaviors.

Environment: Coastal Marsh Food Web
Students explore the variety of salt marsh species and determine their classification in the food chain. After cutting out pictures of the organisms, they create a food chain placing them in the proper order. In addition, they answer questions about the species in the food web.

Can Nutrients in Water Cause Harm?
Ecology candidates culture pond water organisms over a few days time, then they experiment to find out how increasing nutrients affects the population. As part of a unit on water, this exploration gives your class an understanding of how important it is to protect freshwater bodies.

What Is the Water Cycle?
Small groups place sand and ice in a covered box, place the box in the sunlight, then observe as evaporation, condensation, and precipitation occur. These models serve as miniature water cycles and demonstrations of the three phases of matter that water is found in: solid, liquid, and gas.
