My students need a living reef tank filled with interesting animals.
My school is a Title I school located in a suburban area with a transient student population. Many have never been to the ocean or seen living marine animals up close and personal.
I teach Zoology and when we are discussing the Animal Kingdoms, the students cannot picture what we are learning about.
By having a living reef and saltwater tank in the classroom, they will be able to see these animals up close and personal, have a hands-on experience with their day-to-day care and maintenance, and develop a better understanding of how different animal species interact in an ecosystem.
In Zoology we learn all about the Animal Kingdoms, but many animals live in the ocean and are not typically seen by my students, such as the fish that inhabit a reef environment, the living coral that provides the food, and the crabs and snails that keep everything clean.
By bringing a marine ecosystem into the classroom, my students will be able to see first hand how the various animals interact with each other and their environment.
This living reef tank will be their opportunity to observe and maintain a viable ecosystem throughout the entire course, and hopefully, inspire some to continue into the field of Marine Biology studies in college.
