This Impact of Climate Change on Hawaiian Monk Seals Activity 2: The Odd Couple lesson plan also includes:

The topic is symbiotic relationships, and in this case, we get to look at the relationship between the sea anemone and the hermit crab. They review log entries from a Northwestern Hawaiian Island expedition which occurred in 2002, paying close attention to the observations about hermit crabs and anemones. They discuss symbiosis and how two organisms can mutually benefit from living in close proximity. To assess student understanding the class prepares a role-play to summarize what they've learned.
