Create a Marine Protected Area

This Create a Marine Protected Area lesson plan also includes:

Draw your class in by working together to complete a chart of ocean users and uses. Connect the users to how they use the ocean where possible. Introduce the class to ways that areas of the ocean are protected, and take them to the NOAA website for marine protected areas (MPAs). Draw an imaginary coastline on the board and have volunteers suggest what people, resources, and restrictions they would like to include on the map. Overall, this lesson is not strong, but it would be pertinent to a unit on natural resources or how humans impact the environment.
