I Stock 493445469

This unit was designed and created as a response to the urgent need to provide young learners with an opportunity to harness and embrace the resources and living connections found within their surrounding communities. With the growing demands of 21st century learning within public education, community connections are increasingly vital to an enduring understanding of the natural world. Progressing through the six lessons of this unit, students build a strong foundation in marine science literacy as it relates to Cape Cod. Discovering through hands on project based learning, students learn how impacts, both natural and manmade, affect many of the marine species living in this unique coastal community, By the end of the unit, students gain greater understanding of the dedication, love and stewardship efforts made by many in their towns and community.
