The webquest explores deep-sea coral habitats. Students will identify human threats to these communities, and create a strategic plan to enlist peer and community support, and then take action. At the end of the project, students will understand the key role of these animals, and the many ways lack of human understanding imperils them.
Your future depends upon the health of deep-sea coral communities!
How important are deep-sea corals? How do human activities impact living things in the deep ocean? You and your team will conduct research to discover the importance of deep-sea coral communities and their interaction with us! You will use your knowledge to form a corporation, develop a marketing plan, and hold an action meeting to implore others to make changes in their lifestyles and decisions. Your corporation will create a T-shirt,visor, hat, or tie, a brochure, and acquire investors to launch your campaign.
