The food chain is larger than life! I want to show my students that the food chain includes tiny creatures not seen by the naked eye!
I love to teach in our local community and want the lessons that I teach to apply directly to my students' environment.
My students live near the beach. They see marine life and therefore I think they should learn to respect it and help it survive. We need to teach our students more about the habitat and ensuring its survival. The community where I teach is not big. We need your help.
Just a few weekends ago, our community had the opportunity to witness an event never seen before in our waters: blue whales! They were right out off our coast. Many students came to school asking all kinds of questions about them, including what they eat and why they were there. Blue whales use their baleen to eat plankton, such as krill. Krill and other microscopic animals can be seen with the help of a document camera, which can magnify the image and project it on a screen. I have the projector, but I need the camera to hook up the system. This would be an incredible opportunity for my students to learn about their local environment.
Please help me teach my students to understand the incredible diversity of our oceans.
They have the opportunity to see it firsthand. Help me take advantage of this chance to teach them how to appreciate what our local habitat has to offer.
