Thinking Like a Marine Biologist CCSS
This is a packet based around the GATE unit of "Thinking Like a Disciplinarian" designed for K-2 students and aligned with CCSS. Students step into the role of being a Marine Biologist and complete a research study on an ocean animal similar to the story "Over in the Ocean", with the main focus being animal conservation. Following the story students will select an ocean animal (great chance to get some stuffed ocean animals in the classroom) to learn about and work towards conserving.
Students can work independently, in small groups or partners depending on preference and ability. Once the research packet is complete, students will create a conservation poster to draw awareness to how we can help these animals.
