Have you ever wondered how plants and marine life co-exist in the ocean? What is a saltwater ecosystem? You will find out the answers to these questions by creating a museum exhibit explaining how a saltwater ecosystem forms in and near the Pacific Ocean.





There is a new marine ecosystem exhibit opening at the San Diego Natural History Museum. Our class has been chosen to create the exhibit for the museum since our school is so close to the Pacific Ocean. Here is our chance to educate the public and bring awareness about the ocean!

Each team will have different roles to play and will become an intricate part of the ecosystem. The roles will be herbivores, carnivores, producers, consumers, and organisms. These will be explained in the three zone levels. Letís get started because the museum is waiting for the arrival of this exhibit!
