Estuary Teacher Resources

Worksheets include instructor masters, point values, and standards when appropriate. You should only give the students the actual worksheet.

Inside the module, students have to answer ten questions about the area before they can advance. Students answer the questions directly on the site, but we have provided them for you in text format in case you want to use them that way.*
This guide can be used to assess the student’s use of the entire module.*
A list of all of the organisms found in the module.
This graphic organizer worksheet provides a guide for students to classify the animals into their respective families and classes. Students could do this with/without the website. As long as they have the list of organisms, they should be able to classify all of them.
This is the same worksheet as the one above except it is in an outline format instead of the graphic organizer. Students could do this with/without the website. As long as they have the list of organisms, they should be able to classify all of them.
On this worksheet, students color organisms, cut them out and paste them into a food web/food chain. Students can do this with/without the website. Instead of coloring, students could simply write the name of the organism.

Activities

Using yarn and tags, students take on the persona of organisms and determine how the organism affects all of the other organisms in a food web. With yarn, the activity really shows dynamic aspect of the "web." Students can do this with/without visiting the website.
Students take on the persona of an organism and "compete" for space, shelter, food, and water. Students will discover population cycles. Students can do this with/without visiting the website.
