Electronic Field Trips: Curriculum Materials
In the Underwater Ecosystem Adventure Electronic Field Trip students discover the four ecosystems that make the park unique. They interact with the virtual plants, animals and even people in these ecosystems, through the computer, to learn important facts. Teachers can read about the learning objectives of this e-field trip on the Underwater Ecosystem Adventure Lesson Plan. The lesson plan also includes extensions to add to the students' comprehension.
To further enhance the students' understanding of the park and the natural resources around them the Underwater Ecosystem Adventure Review, comprised of multiple choice, true/false and critical thinking questions, can be completed in conjunction with this e-field trip.
Teachers can call the education office at (305)230-7275 x08 for a copy of the answer key to the Underwater Ecosystem Adventure Review.
