A Lesson in Biodiversity: Making Comparisons Between Defensive Mechanisms Utilized by Marine Organisms
If your upper elementary or middle school marine biology learners are going to visit an aquarium, then here is a field trip activity guide for you. It is written specifically for The Maritime Aquarium, but the idea can be adapted to any aquarium excursion. On an activity sheet, observers describe defense mechanisms, possible predators, the habitat for one of the organisms on display. Plenty of materials are provided for you to use in preparing marine biologists for this activity.
