• Marine Biology Summer Assignment

    Since we will be studying the physical and biological characteristics of the ocean as well as human impact on the ocean your summer assignment is a presentation including the following items to familiarize yourself with these abiotic and biotic factors:

     

    1. A picture of the beach profile or a hand drawing with the following labels:
      1. Name of beach
      2. Dunes
      3. Strand line
      4. Intertidal Zone
      5. Subtidal Zone
    2. Pictures of 5 DIFFERENT organisms that you find on the beach (can be shells) with the following information:
      1. Common Name
      2. Scientific Name
      3. Role in the environment (i.e. herbivore, carnivore, autotroph, detritivore or decomposer)
    3. You must complete a beach sweep (pick up at least 5 different pieces of litter), take a picture(s) of what you collected and then properly disposed of to help lessen our impact on the ocean environment (can be 1 picture of all 5 items or a picture for each item).
    4. EACH PICTURE MUST HAVE YOUR FACE OR A PERSONAL OBJECT INCLUDED TO AUTHETICATE THE PHOTO
    5. Your project will be presented to the class and counted as your first lab grade for the year (Lab assignments comprise 25% of your grade).

     You must create a visual representation with the required information as well as valid academic sources (no Wikipedia, google, answers, etc…) and submit it digitally to me (EMAIL: knowicki@wtps.org) the first Monday of the school year (September 9, 2019 by 11:59pm).

     

     The project can be a power point, google slides, prezi, video (uploaded to youtube), etc…

     

     I look forward to seeing you in class!!!

     

    Have a great summer!
