Lesson

Nā ʻŌulaula: Plankton Voyagers

Learn how global climate change is affecting plankton (and, thus, whole marine ecosystems) locally, regionally and globally. Students identify specific topics to enhance their understanding of plankton adaptations in order to explain how they survive within ocean currents. Activities focus on comparing, contrasting, and understanding the relationship between organic and inorganic entities within ocean currents.
