Coral reef and their marine families
Target Group: Middle School
Subject: Coral Reef Life
Ocean Literacy Principle: 5
Students learn more about the coral reef and the marine life through a PowerPoint presentation of the Great Barrier Reef.
Students brainstorm in small groups to see what they know already of the coral reef. After the presentation, the teacher leads a group discussion. As homework, they have to find information about an organism living on the reef. You can find the activity on page 8 of the Educator's Guide. Most species that are found in Australia are also present in Asia.
