Themes to Encourage Awareness of Environmental Changes on the Shoreline of Connecticut in Elementary School Students: The Case of Kelsey Island

Students begin the instructional activity by developing a map of Kelsey Island by following specific instructions. In groups, they are given a block of ice in which they tie a rope around and drag over various rocks for different distances. They record, compare and contrast their answers. They also discover how the sea level rises when ice is put into water with their ice block. They end the instructional activity by discussion how this affects coastal areas.
